White Bird of Paradise-Strelitzia Nicolai
Hello, Gorgeous! This exotic and tropical lady is sure to be a unique addition to your #plantbaby collection. If you spot this gal and mistake her flowers for a bird, don't worry - you're not alone. That is exactly where she gets her name! She has dark green, shiny leaves that often get confused with banana plants.
To keep this lady happy:
- High to medium light - direct sunlight is ideal.
- Water once per week. Allow the soil to dry out before watering. You can test this, by making sure that the first 1-2" inches of soil down is dry to the touch. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Overwatering can keep the soil wet for too long, resulting in root rot.
