Strelitzia Nicolai

Bird of Paradise

From £40

My large paddle-shaped leaves on my long elegant stems make me a standout piece almost anywhere in the house - and I love sunny spots!

In the wild I can break out into a fantastic bloom of white flowers, but it can take a number of years for me to reach full maturity.

To see me at my best

I love humidity and bright light - in the warmer Summer you can even move me outside so I can soak up those rays.

How to look after me

  • Light


    I love the sunshine - you can put me in direct light, just be careful with the hottest summer rays.

    Water liberally when the top of my soil is dry but don't let the soil become wet; water me much less in winter.

  • Food


    Feed me once a month in spring and summer.

  • Climate


    I like regular misting and prefer temperatures over 20°C.

  • Other Maintentance


    Wipe my leaves every few weeks to remove dust.

    Cracked leaf tips

    Leaves will split naturally as the plant ages.
  • Look Out

    Brown leaves

    This can be a sign of too low humidity or your plant may be underwatered.
  • Look Out

    Rotting at the base

    This is a sign of root rot caused by overwatering; repot into fresh compost.
