    An update, Im not even sure if it has changed.
    Maybe its blooming at night and I don't see it open. Does anyone know about the blooming habits of Tacca's?

    Maybe that is the bloom? It is really cool whatever the case.

    Nope, I've seen a pic of it in full bloom. Definetly looks like a bats face.

    Cool! I definitely see it in your first photo. Ears up, chin down, eyes and snout. Very nice!

    Keep the bat-pics coming, Robin!

    Doesn't look like a bat to me... I thought the bat part was the whole blossom group... like this one I saw at the Orchid show...
