One of the most beautiful jungle plants there is: the Strelitzia. With beautiful strong leaves and flowering characteristics special specimen.
After you have taken good care of the Strelitzia for a few years, the plant can reward you with a flower. And just like that! Full of colour and fragrance.
Originally, the Strelitzia, which we also call Bird of Paradise plant, comes from South Africa.
Taking care of the Strelitzia
Taking care of the Strelitzia is harder work than with a cactus. Although we can guarantee you that a Strelitzia is really not demanding.
If you give the plant a location with direct sunlight, it is already very happy. Do you water the plant 3 times a week in the summer? Then its day can’t be broken anymore! To give you some rest, you can scale up the watering in the winter to once a week. From spring to summer, the Strelitzia prefers to receive a sip of plant food once every two weeks.
Propagating the Strelitzia
A Strelitzia can be propagated with extremely few supplies. The plant can be propagated by tearing its root ball. Divide the roots, and make several ‘bouquets’ of the plant. Repot, wait and see the baby plant grow!
