Strelitzia are known for their lush, tropical foliage. They make stunning architectural plants, due to their tall erect stems and wide, banana-like, paddle shaped leaves.


The hydroculture version of Strelitzia nicolai is the larger, white flowering relative of Strelizia reginea (the orange flowering Bird of Paradise).


Please note: Bird of Paradise may not always flower when kept indoors and plants are not shipped in flower. The leaves naturally tear and have a shabby chic, rugged appearance and foliage is unlikely to be pristine.

Light: Strelitzia grow best in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight may scorch the leaves and damage the flowers.

WaterKeep the soil moist (not soggy) during warmer months and water when the top 4-5cm of the soil has become slightly dry. During the colder months, allow the soil to dry-out a little more. Do not allow to stand in water.

Humidity: Will do best with increased humidity but can usually cope in normal household conditions. Increase the surrounding humidity in the winter to combat dry air from central heating.

Temperature: Prefers warm temperatures from 21-28°C but can cope with as low as 13°C. 
Humidity: Will do best with increased humidity but can usually cope in normal household conditions. Increase the surrounding humidity in the winter to combat dry air from central heating.

Feed: Add a hydroculture liquid feed every 2 to 3 waterings during spring/summer.

Care Tips: The leaves will split naturally as the plant matures. This is to allow light to reach the lower parts of the plant. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth. The leaves are therefore not pristine and leaf damage occurs frequently.

Height and Growth Rate: Ultimate height 5-6m outdoors, indoors more likely to be 3m. Fast growing in warm conditions.

Toxicity: Strelitzia reginae is known as being toxic to animals. There is less definitive information regarding Strelitzia nicolai, with some sources listing this as non-toxic. However, in the event of uncertainly, we would recommend you consider this plant as toxic to animals.

Origin: Southern Africa.
