An indoor Bird of Paradise is a slow growing plant with large paddle- shaped leaves that resemble those of a banana plant. Even indoors, a Bird of Paradise plant can easily reach a height of 6ft-7ft. This plant produces multiple large, leathery leaves sometimes 3ft or more in length. After 4 or 5 years, an indoor Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia Reginae) may, on rare occasions, produce an exotic orange/red flower that resembles the head of a crane. The Strelitzia Nicolai or White Bird of Paradise produces a blue/white version of this flower.
Light: Very bright light. Can be placed in direct sun over time as it adapted.
Water: Keep soil moist but never soggy. In the winter, they go into resting and need less water.
