How to grow White Bat Flower

  • Full Shade

  • High

This plant will do good in the same conditions as orchids and even likes misting just like orchids do. Humidity and strong airflow and moderate light and temperature are some of the conditions they need. The flowers will not do good for display except on the plant. Not suitable for cut flowers as it wilts fast. Left in the plant the flowers will last longer.1

Plant in a location that enjoys full shade and remember to water often. Use Zone 8 - Zone 11 as your guideline for the appropriate climate for this plant. Ideally plant in potting mix soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 6.1 and 7.5 as White Bat Flower likes to be in weakly acidic soil - weakly alkaline soil. Keep in mind when planting that White Bat Flower is thought of as tender, so remember to ensure that temperatures are mild before moving outdoors.
