Bird of Paradise

Strelitzia reginae

Birds of Paradise are regal, upright tropicals that are reminiscent of lush jungle scenes. Use the easy care and height of the BoP to add height and beautiful foliage to your home.

Care

  • Light Needs: Indoors- Bright, Indirect light; Outdoors- Shade
  • Water Needs: Watering too much or too often will cause the plant to rot. Allow the top 1-2" of soil to dry out almost completely before watering thoroughly 
  • Bloom Season: Birds of Paradise generally do not flower this far north, especially when kept indoors. When presented with perfect conditions (light, humidity, watering schedule), your BoP may flower, but this is extremely rare.
  • Height: 1 - 6 feet
  • Growth Habit: Upright
  • Feed with an all-purpose houseplant food every two weeks during the growing season (April-September), and once a month during the Winter.
