XL Strelitzia Nicolai (White Bird of Paradise/Wild Banana)

Regular price £52.99 Unit price  per 

Tax included.

This is the white flowering cousin to the Strelizia reginea - known as 'Bird of Paradise' due to their flowers that resemble these types of birds in the wild. Their big, glossy leaves also a resemble a banana tree hence it's other nickname 'Wild Banana', despite them not actually producing fruit. Strelizia are not as likely to flower indoors and can take a while to reach maturity and flower (sometimes 5-6 years!) They're absolutely worth nurturing that long! 

  • Water: Keep the soil slightly damp (not wet) during Summer and water regularly to keep it topped up. During the colder months, allow to dry out a little between waterings. 
  • Light: Lover of bright sunlight. Will not cope for long in the shade.
  • Temperature/Humidity: Lover of warmth and humidity due to its jungle roots. Mist regularly to keep humidity levels high.
