Bird of Paradise

Strelitzia reginae

This baby can grow up to 6ft tall and sometimes referred to as the 'Crane plant' due to its amazing flowers that resemble the feathers of a birds head. Flowers will only occur if treated with the right environment and will take several years to produce.

A tropical plant originating in South Africa means it will enjoy a warm position indoors all year round. 

Light/Position

Needs very bright but indirect light. 

Water

Keep the soil slightly damp in warmer weather and the growing season. Let soil dry out completely between watering in winter.
