Plant Care

The Bird of Paradise AKA Strelitzia Nicolai requires a sunny spot but it 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. 

Note, 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 this plant needs at least 6 hours of sunlight a day to actually bloom.
