Strelitzia Nicolai

Origin

The Strelitzia reginae or Bird of Paradise flower is originally from South Africa, but in the meantime the plant has spread to almost all tropical and subtropical areas.

Strelitzia belongs to the family of bananas (Musaceae) and are closely linked. Yet the differences between Musa and Strelitzia are at least as numerous as the similarities. For example, the leaf shape of both plants is about the same, but the leaves of bananas are rather thin and tear easily, while the leaves of the bird of paradise flower are very thick, strong and unbreakable.

Care

Every week the Bird of Paradise flower needs a good splash of water, just make sure that no layer of water remains in the soil. Also regularly spray the leaves so that the leaves stay nice and green. Halve watering in winter!

Also give the plants a place in winter where the temperature does not drop below 10 ° C and preferably in a light place. Also keep the plants quite dry during this period.
In the summer, the Bird of Paradise Flower prefers a light and warm location in full sun. To prevent evaporation, preferably in a wind-free place. The bird of paradise flowers will thank you on the terrace or balcony with many beautiful flowers.
