Strelitzia Birds of Paradise


Birds of paradise (Strelitzia) are striking tropical plants known for their large, bold foliage and unique bird-like flowers. Here are some care tips for Birds of Paradise:

☀️ Birds of Paradise prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially morning sunlight, but avoid intense, midday sun, which can scorch the leaves. If grown indoors, place them near a sunny window.

💦 Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your Birds of Paradise regularly, allowing the top inch or two of soil to dry out between waterings. Reduce watering frequency during the winter months when growth slows down.

🪹 Plant Birds of Paradise in well-draining, fertile soil. A mix of potting soil, perlite, and sand works well to provide good drainage while retaining some moisture.

🌡️ Birds of Paradise prefer warm temperatures between 65-70°F (18-27°C). They can tolerate temperatures as low as 50°F (10°C) but prefer to be kept warm and away from drafts.

🌧️ Birds of Paradise thrive in high humidity environments. Increase humidity around the plant by misting the leaves regularly, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water and pebbles beneath the plant.

🥣 Feed your Birds of Paradise with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization frequency during the winter months.

✂️ Trim off any yellow or dead leaves as needed to maintain the plant's appearance and health. Remove spent flowers to encourage new growth.

🪴 Birds of Paradise should be repotted every 2-3 years to refresh the soil and provide room for growth. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one and use fresh potting mix.

By following these care tips, you can help your Birds of Paradise thrive and enjoy their stunning foliage and occasional striking flowers.
