The White Bat Plant Blooms

In addition to the Tropical House in the Marco Polo Stufano Conservatory, Wave Hill Gardener Will Wallace also tends the Elliptical Garden, Lilac Border and Myrica Slope below the Pergola, as well as the balustrade areas surrounding it.

The white bat plant (Tacca nivea) has been in bloom for about a week in the tropical house.  It should stick around until Friday, so if you have a moment you might want to take a look. 

If the thought of stepping in to the heat is too much you will have another chance since it usually blooms two or three times a year.
