Large Bird of Paradise (140cm) in Black Rustic Planter
Strelitzia reginae (140cm) in Black Rustic Planter without saucer
Bird of Paradise / Banana Leaf Plant
How to Grow and Care
Given its own family Strelitziaceae by taxonomists, it is still closely related to bananas (Musaceae). Many often mistakenly call this plant for the “banana tree” because it looks like banana plants. These regal plants (for which they are named, reginae) are named for the beautiful, orange crane-like flowers that they produce, like birds of paradise. They are known for bright orange-blue colors, however, there are also white birds of paradise. Under the right conditions, including full, southern light exposure, proper humidity, and temperature, Bird of Paradise may flower indoors, although this is rare.
Thrives in bright indirect light to full sun when acclimated. Not suited for low light conditions.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
Pro tip: Birds of Paradise can benefit from filtered water or water left out overnight before using.
Suitable for Indoors.
Keep away from dogs and Cats.
