The White Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia Nicolai) are known for their lush, tropical foliage. They make stunning architectural plants, due to their tall erect stems and wide, banana-like, paddle shaped leaves. Bird of Paradise may not always flower when kept indoors. The leaves naturally tear and have a shabby chic, rugged appearance and foliage is unlikely to be pristine.


  • Care Level: Beginner
  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect/directly light; Can cope for periods in partial shade but needs bright light longer term. Some morning or late afternoon sun is fine
  • Water: Keep the soil moist (not soggy) during warmer months and water when the top 4-5cm of the soil has become slightly dry. During the colder months, allow the soil to dry out a little more. Do not allow the plant to sit in water as this will cause root rot. Like most houseplants, it's best to water your plant at room temperature or lukewarm water
  • Ideal Temperature: Prefers warm temperatures from 21-28°C but can cope with as low as 13°C
