This Strelitzia Nicolai is also known as the Bird of Paradise, Wild Banana or Crane Plant.
Strelitzia are known for their lush, leafy, tropical foliage. Theymake a great statement plant. This guy is the larger, white flowering relative of Strelizia reginea (the orange flowering Bird of Paradise).
Bird of Paradise may not always flower when kept indoors. The leaves naturally tear and have a shabby chic, rugged appearance and foliage is unlikely to be pristine.
Strelitzia grow best in bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight may scorch the leaves. It can cope for periods in partial shade but needs bright light longer term. An East or West facing window is ideal.
Keep the soil moist and water when the top 4-5cm of the soil has become slightly dry.
Delivered in 17cm pot.
