Top-heavy plants with large green foliage can trigger evolutionary responses in our brains that make us feel safe. White Birds of Paradise are large plants. They are one of the larger variants in the Strelitzia family.

  • A wonderful plant that can be kept indoors and even out in the garden
  • Aside from incredible looks, these shrubs are also easy to care for
  • They are fairly forgiving plants and will show you through their leaves if something’s not right
  • Strelitzia nicolai is a relative of the banana tree and has been nicknamed the Wild Banana tree
  • Because of their size, they have also been nicknamed the Giant White Bird of Paradise. 

Just make sure you have enough space as this plant can grow to be a big one! 

Strelitzia 'White Bird of Paradise' Care Guide

Light

Place your Strelitzia nicolai in a spot with partial to full sun but avoid excessive sunlight as this can scorch its leaves. If you start noticing dark spots, it's a sign of too much sun

Water

Let half of the soil dry between waterings, let the soil get moist, not soggy. Too much water can cause root rot. Yellowing leaves mean that they need more hydration

Temperature

Ideal temperatures are between 18 and 27 ºC. Avoid cold draughts. This plant is not tolerant to frost

Feeding

During the growing season, feed it with a general-purpose fertiliser once every two to three weeks. Do not feed it during the colder months

Toxicity

Keep away from nibbly pets and curious children.

Grooming

Younger plants will need to be repotted once a year, established ones only need repotting once every 3 years. Use a well-draining, slightly acidic light soil mix. Regular pruning is recommended. Remove yellowing, damaged or dead leaves to give room for new ones to grow. You can propagate your White Bird of Paradise through division. Divide your plant’s rhizome during one of your repotting sessions.

Care

Mist the plant regularly to increase the humidity levels and keep its leaves clear of built-up dust
