Strelitzia Nicolai is also known as the white bird of paradise. Popular due to its tropical foliage, it provides instant impact and a sense of the jungle. This clever plant allows the leaves to split as they mature to allow light to reach lower parts of the plant. This will only flower after a few years. Strelitzia Nicolai are native to South Africa where the climate is mild and wet, to grow a Brid of Paradise indoors you will need to provide similar growing conditions.
