Strelitzia (Bird of Paradise) is a tropical plant native to the Amazon. Known for its elusive and colorful bloom in the shape of its namesake bird, these plants will quickly take over your home and turn it into a jungle paradise! Just don't expect them to flower every year; it's not uncommon for these plants not to bloom if they don't have the right conditions.
Our 4' tall bird of paradise has been grown by a South Florida company that has been in service of the ornamental houseplant industry since 1961. Known for their customer service and excellent selection, the company strives to exceed expectations and over-deliver on their promises. We imbue these same values into our hard work and pass this commitment and positivity on to you!
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
- 10" nursery pot with drainage holes or your vessel of choice. Recommend transplanting within 1-2 years into a vessel 1-2 inches larger using regular potting mix
Clean leaves with damp paper towel every 1-2 weeks to aid photosynthesis and stimulate growth. Check leaves and stalks for pests while cleaning. For more information on the importance of cleaning leaves, read our guide here.
If pests are found, remove with damp paper towel and use a mild organic pesticide in a spray bottle to coat the affected areas. More information on common pest problems can be found here.
- Toxic to pets, contact veterinarian immediately if any part of plant is ingested
Water thoroughly once every 7 days and allow excess water to run out the drainage holes in the nursery pot or whichever vessel you transplant into. If your pot has no drainage holes, we will add clay drainage balls to the bottom of the pot, however avoid overwatering. You can read some fundamental rules of watering here.
Medium to high indirect light, avoid windows as they amplify the sun's intensity and create heat that may damage plant. You can find our plant placement guidelines here.
