Note: the plant and belly basket will arrive in separate boxes. Just pop the plant in the lined basket and it’s ready for its forever home.

Plant Care

The Bird of Paradise AKA Strelitzia Nicolai requires a sunny spot but doesn’t like direct sunlight as the leaves could scorch. They like to be kept moist in the summer so should be watered weekly but don’t let it sit in water. In winter, let the soil at the top dry out in between watering. Brown tips can be caused by over-watering. It is normal for the leaves to split at the end, this also occurs naturally in the wild. Unlike the Bird of Paradise cut flower, if you are looking for flowers they are unlikely to appear as his plant needs at least 6 hours of sunlight a day to actually bloom.

    Brilliant company. Everything ordered comes in pristine condition compared to other online plant shops. They take great care. Stylish packaging too. Though Hopefully one day something could be figured to not use as much plastic.
