Strelitzia nicolai | White Bird of Paradise
19cm pot / approx. 80cm height
A sun worshipper! A south facing bright room or conservatory is preferable but it can also cope with medium light too
Keep the soil moist during the growing season but let it dry out during the winter
A robust plant that doesn't brown easily and grows pretty much all year round
Did you know...?
Strelitzia enjoy the South African sunshine in their natural habitat so they are most certainly a sun worshipper but you'll be pleased to know they can tolerate shadier spots too.
Keep the soil moist during the growing season but let the soil dry out during the winter months. Adding plant food into your watering schedule will encourage flowering. Not guaranteed but if your plant is happy and mature, you might be treated one day.
