This relatively fast growing Strelitzia is characterized by the large green unrolling leaves that grow in a fan shape. The Strelitzia originates from South Africa and is related to the Musaceae. In the Netherlands it is also called the white bird of paradise plant. Our grower grows this plant as a strong green plant because the plant has to reach a height of 10 meters before it produces flowers. The Strelitzia is grown indoors and can therefore be used as an eycatcher in the house. Place the plant in a light environment but avoid direct sunlight. Older leaves can be removed.
