White Bat Flower: Tacca Integrifolia, Bat Head Lily, Devil Flower

Tacca integrifolia 'Nivea'

To germinate Tacca integrifolia 'Nivea', start by soaking the seeds in lukewarm water for 24 hours. Fill a seed tray with a well-draining potting mix, then scatter the seeds on top of the mix and cover them with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and place the tray in a warm and bright location. The seeds should start to germinate within 2-3 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
