All the tips and tricks for expert-level care.

PLANT SIZE : 3 feet tall (including pot)


Moderate - High maintenance


It thrives in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can inhibit flowering.


Frequency: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Reduce watering during the winter months when the plant's growth slows.
Water Quality: Use distilled or rainwater if possible, as Bat Flowers can be sensitive to the chemicals in tap water.
Preference: This plant loves high humidity. Aim for humidity levels of 60-80%. Regular misting, using a humidity tray, or placing a humidifier nearby can help maintain the necessary moisture levels.
Range: Bat Flowers prefer warm temperatures between 60-85°F (15-29°C). Protect the plant from drafts and avoid temperatures below 55°F (13°C).
Type: Use a well-draining, rich potting mix. A mix designed for orchids or a combination of peat, perlite, and orchid bark works well.
Schedule: Feed the plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding during the fall and winter.
Maintenance: Remove any dead or yellowing leaves to keep the plant healthy. Pruning spent flowers can also help encourage new blooms.
Method: The Bat Flower can be propagated through rhizome division or from seeds. Rhizome division is the more common method and is typically done in the spring.
Rhizome Division: Carefully separate a section of the rhizome with a few leaves attached and plant it in a fresh potting mix.
Seeds: If propagating from seeds, be aware that it can take a long time for them to germinate and mature into flowering plants.
Pests and Diseases
Common Issues: Watch for common pests such as spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Regularly inspect the plant and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
Diseases: Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal diseases, and avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
Additional Tips
Placement: Given its need for high humidity and warm temperatures, the Bat Flower does well in bathrooms or kitchens where these conditions are naturally higher.
Repotting: Repot the plant every 2-3 years to refresh the soil and provide more space for growth.
