Bird of Paradise



White Bird of Paradise, scientifically known as Strelitzia nicolai, is a magnificent tropical plant admired for its large, banana-like leaves and striking white flowers resembling a bird in flight.

Light Requirement: White Bird of Paradise thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate partial shade. It appreciates several hours of direct sunlight each day, especially in the morning or late afternoon. Avoid prolonged exposure to intense afternoon sun, which may scorch its leaves.

Watering Requirement: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings, then water thoroughly. White Bird of Paradise prefers consistently moist soil but is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Reduce watering frequency during the winter months when growth slows down.

Mature Height: White Bird of Paradise typically grows to a height of 20 to 30 feet (6 to 9 meters) outdoors in its native habitat but can be maintained at a more manageable height indoors. It forms a clump of large, paddle-shaped leaves arranged in a fan-like pattern.
