The Exotic Bat Flower

Most of my Gothic friends know about the Bat Flower, or Devil Flower (Tacca chantrieri) and admire the exotic quality of this species - native to the humid regions of Southeast Asia. I originally came across this specimen while living in Copenhagen. The local flower stores imported this variety of exotica from Spain. They do well in the Tropics and Sub-Tropics; however, getting them to survive a cold winter indoors is very tricky, but some do have success. This link has a bit more information on the Exotic Bat Flower:
