It is very unusual to get so many stems in one 24cm pot at 100cm, these Strelitzia Reginae are special, so much more than your average single stem plant.  Strelitzia Reginae 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.

 

Light:

Place in Bright light with some direct sun, should be slightly away from south facing windows to avoid burning. It will thrive if moved outside in the summer.

 

Water:

Keep the soil continually moist but not soggy, you will need to to water it more often in the spring and summer as it loses moisture through its big leaves. Allow the top 2 inches of soil to dry between waterings in the winter. Bird of paradise prefers high humidity, it is good to mist it if your home is dry.

 

Soil:

Bird of Paradise likes to be planted in a free draining soil to prevent root rot. Repot every 3 years and onlky when roots are extremely pot bound.

 

Fertiliser:

Feed the plant every 2 weeks April - September. Keep your plants happy with our own Original Organic Vegan Plant Food. When it came to developing Happy Houseplants’ Original Organic Vegan Plant Food, we decided not to tinker with it too much, so you'll find no chemical supplements in this 100% cruelty free product.
