Its grand size gives it the name 'Giant White Bird Of Paradise', as it can grow to great heights (up to 16 feet!) , but the grace and understated grandeur of its sinuous shape is what makes it such a compelling house plant (it can have a summer holiday outdoors but won't survive our worst winters). 

The leaves alone are large and exotic looking, but when in flower, sadly seldom seen outside of the wild, it opens wide like a great white Crane. 

Also known commonly as the Wild Banana, as it is a species of banana-like plants, of which there is the orange flowering variety Reginae which we also stock for its silvery more upright leaves. Either give stature, shape and form to any room. 

Please note that Strelitzia leaves naturally split, it is how the plant evolved to deal with winds. 

Best space & place

Happiest situated in indirect bright light. It is happy in most rooms, with a minimum temperature of 10°C. It can be acclimatised to live in direct sun, but leaves will scorch while it adjusts. 

When to water & feed

In the summer months Strelitzia require their soil to remain moist to keep the leaves looking good. Just make sure the soil drains well and they don't sit in water. Feeding is beneficial.

Need to know

Strelitzia need humidity to thrive, it is important to increase humidity by misting, and introducing fresh airflow, especially when temperatures hit 20 degrees, ventilating the home.
