Yes, Betty Korn is correct. I did some research and found this and the link

if anyone is interested http://www.easyorchids.co.uk/shop/T ... hantieri-Black-Beauty-BAT-PLANT.html

Beauty', Bat Plant

Tacca chantieri 'Black Beauty', Bat Plant

These fantastic tropical plants are not orchids The plants like heat and humidity (like Vanda and Phalaenopsis) and stand approximately 28 inches high! The flowers are deepest purple and are almost black and 8 inches across with 10 inch whiskers dangling down super warm conservatory plants.

I have never heard of a Bat Orchid, don't know myself but it is really unusual.

My first reaction was that it looks like a wet, angry cat! Good luck with identification! ;)

My question is do you have any seeds it is beautiful and what area or zone do you live in? I would love one of those. Is it easy to grow?

I don't know but I sure would like to have one of them. That looks awesome!

Wow Caralee! That is a beauty! I think it is a "Bat" plant. It looks like the one in my "Burgess seed & plant" catalog. I almost ordered one but didn't . Now I think I will. I wish I could catch it on their 1 cent sale ! Like that would ever happen. %): >
