Giant White Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia Nicolai)
Styled in Mayon Cement Planter
The Nicolai is the large form of the common 'Bird of Paradise'. Nicolai grows to about 6m tall, and is very hardy and reasonably drought tolerant. Great as a two-storey screening plant in suburban gardens or works well as an indoor plant. It will take longer to grow If potted indoors, however it extends its leaves to reach for more light
Size (Can grow to)
Max height 5 to 6 meters if planted in the ground. Growth will be much slower when pitted for indoor use *
Well-lit position Indoors away from too much direct sunlight. Stunning outdoor shade plant - protected areas. Strelitzia's will cope with a darker position for some time, but growth will be much slower
Medium. The amount of water needed will depend on where you end up putting your plant. Bird of Paradise plants in brighter, warmer spots are going to need considerably more than those in darker positions. A good rule of thumb is to water after the top of the soil becomes dry
