Scientific Name: Strelizia nicolai
Synonyms: Giant White Bird of Paradise, Natal Wild Banana, Wild Banana, Strelizia 

  • Adorable Mini version
  • Water-wise and very easy care
  • Full, lush green foliage
  • The definitive Jungle Look
  • Plant level: Easy

If you're in need of the definitive indoor jungle look for good tropical vibes but can't afford a large, lush specimen right now, consider starting young with this cutie. Over time, with proper care, you end up with something large and lush that you can be extra proud of.

This proudly South African plant has captured the imagination of indoor plant lovers the world over. It's loved for its full, evergreen foliage that fans out into a triumphant display of green

In its natural environment, the Strelitzia Nicolai will grow into large, clustered trees that are 12 meters high and up to 4 metres across. Potted in your home, you can expect this house plant to continue generating new leaves from the centre of its stem outwards. Water thoroughly, and let the plant dry out a little in between.

Find a nice, brightly lit spot in your home - possibly a bright corner of a room - where the Wild Banana will hold court beautifully.

Please Note: Strelitzias are toxic to humans and animals, especially the flowers and seeds. Please do not consume. Keep out of reach of animals and children,

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Follow these instructions to keep your Wild Banana healthy and happy.

  • Water: During the summer months, the Strelitzia will need regular watering to keep the soil moist. During winter and autumn, water less allowing the soil to almost dry out before the next water. Careful not to let the soil be waterlogged.
  • Light: Plenty of bright light. Our variety is "soft grown" in a greenhouse, so they won't tolerate harsh, direct sunlight. Some softer direct morning sun will be fine. Too little light and the Wild Banana won't be happy.
  • Humidity: Normal room humidity will be fine.
  • Fertilize: Feed twice a month during the growing period (Spring-Summer) cutting back during its dormancy (colder season).
