    Hi Natalie, what a cool flower. Here are some instructions on caring for you bat flower. Good luck

    How do you take care of a bat plant?

    Soil should be light and retain moisture but never allowed to get soggy. Try making your own potting mix by adding perlite and vermiculite to a good peat based soil.Plants growing outdoors benefit from sand in the soil, just not too much. Bat flower info says the plant should be allowed to dry out during dormancy.Nov 22, 2016
