Strelizia Nicholii - Bird of Paradise
The Bird of Paradise originates from the costal forests of South Africa. This species grows much taller than the well known orange flowered variety. This species flowers, but only when grown outdoors.
Strelitzias are very tolerant of a wide range of environmental conditions. They are suitable for areas that cool down over night.
Bird of Paradise performs very poorly in low light. Stems do not harden and can not support the weight of the foliage. Place in high natural light (1000 plus lux).
Available in 300mm pot size.
Height: 1.8m to 3m
Weight: 12.15kg to 15.00kg
