The Strelitzia reginae, more famous as the Bird of Pradise plant is named so for its beautiful orange and blue blooms. A cousin of the banana family, it is one of the easier and more tolerant tropical plants to be grown at home. The plant can grow easily anywhere from bright direct light to semi-shade areas to reward you with graceful arching leaves that come out directly from the soil resembling a hand fan.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:The bird of paradise loves slow release fertilisers, so give it a good helping of good quality compost every 15-20 days and ferilise with a generic plant fertiliser in its growing season.
Repotting : Repot your bird of paradise only when it is rootbound and you can see roots coming out of the drainage hole and top soil. Use a rich but very well-draining potting mix and a pot that is jsut one size bigger.
Propogation : The Bird of Paradise spread with new plants as they mature, but they can be propagated through division of the root rhizome with three leaves or more in each section. its advisable to avoid dividing as larger clumps produce more flowers.
