Strelitzia nicolai (Giant Bird of Paradise) in 24cm Pot, Height 100cm

79.99 “Price excl. VAT: 70.48

This structural evergreen is primarily grown for its handsome (banana-like) foliage, which becomes shredded as it ages. Given time and the right conditions, however, it may occasionally produce a blue and white flowerhead too! In its native environment, this plant can grow to a great height (the foliage alone nearing 4m), but when confined to a pot and kept as an indoor plant, it will be a much more modest, but no less decorative specimen.

During the growing season, water regularly and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Water sparingly in winter and top dress each spring. As the old leaves become shredded, trim them off. The plants should be potted into a larger pot in autumn and may be left outside from May to September (provided there is no risk of frost). They need winter protection and can be kept in a greenhouse or conservatory from October through to April.

Supplied in a 24cm pot
