INDOOR OR OUTDOOR PLANT - Bird of Paradise in 30cm pot
The Bird of Paradise plant, or strelitzia, is a large and gorgeous foliage plant that looks just as majestic indoors in a pot, as it does outside in the garden. The Bird of Paradise is native to Africa, they can grow up to 1.3 metres tall and spread up to two to three metres wide when aged, and has similar foliage to that of banana leaves.
In Victoria it can be grown in a pot indoors or in a sheltered position outside. In order to keep its foliage in an attractive state we recommend ensuring it is out of the wind to avoid leaves tearing.
A bird of paradise needs bright light, including some direct sunlight, to bloom well.
