The large green-blue leaves of the Bird of Paradise plant give your space an instant tropical vibe.
These plants deliver to the Palm Beach trend and are a great alternative to the messier Banana Palm. This variety is Strelitzia Nicolai, the Giant Bird of Paradise.
They like a warm indoor position with bright indirect light (or a warm shady outdoor position). Easy to care for – water regularly in summer and allow the top of soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Unlikely to flower indoors. They will grow fast in ideal conditions with regular feeding.
When grown indoors, you should regularly wipe the top and underside of the leaves with a damp cloth to help remove unwanted pests and keep them dust free.
Current plant height is 80 to 100cm approximately from the top of the pot to the leaf tip.
