Paradise plant for your home!

A sibling of the Strelitzia nicolai, the Regina has been optimised for indoor environments and will grow reliably without taking over your living room!

I am grown for both my large oval leaves and flowers, although you're unlikely to see me flower indoors. I'm quite rare a find - you'll mostly come across the Nicolai variety.

Although the variety originates in South Africa, it gets its name from an 18th century English monarch. The Reginae was named in honour of George III's wife, Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (regiana = reigning queen). 

In 1773, George III was presented with the plant and entered it into the Royal Botanical Garden, where it became the envy of European aristocrats. Both George and Charlotte were keen botanists and played key roles in the expansion of Kew Gardens, so owners of this beautiful foliage plant are in good company. 

Fun Fact: I was named after Queen Charlotte, King George III's wife after I was brought to England from South Africa in 1773 to be part of the King's Botanical Gardens. 

Bird of Paradise Care Guide

Light

I prefer full or partial sun but avoid direct sun that could burn my leaves.

Water

Leave my soil to dry out almost completely before watering and don't let me stand in water.

Temperature

I like it hot! Temperatures of above 21 degrees are ideal but I can tolerate temperatures down to 13 degrees.

Feeding

I like a balanced fertilizer every two weeks throughout the spring and summer. During the winter months feeding me once a month is enough.

Toxicity

I'm best kept away from children and pets.

Grooming

I do not need to be pruned.

Care

I prefer normal air humidity inside the home. During the winter months, you can mist my leaves to simulate rainfall!
