Product Description

Strelitzia reginae, the Bird of Paradise or Crane Flower, is an iconic tropical plant known for its striking and distinctive appearance. Native to South Africa, it belongs to the Strelitziaceae family and is part of the Strelitzia genus. This plant features large, banana-like leaves that are glossy, dark green, and arranged in a fan-like pattern. The real showstopper, however, is its exquisite and ornate flowers. The Bird of Paradise produces complex, multicolored flowers resembling the plumage of a tropical bird, thus earning its common name. These flowers consist of orange and blue petals that emerge from a boat-shaped bract. While the plant may not flower until several years old, when it does, the blooms are a sight to behold. Bird of Paradise is a popular choice for both indoor and outdoor landscapes, adding a touch of the tropics to any setting.


  1. Location: Place Strelitzia reginae in a location that receives bright, indirect sunlight or partial shade. Avoid exposing it to direct, intense sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

  2. Soil: Use a well-draining, loamy potting mix with organic matter to ensure optimal growth. Bird of Paradise prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH.

  3. Planting: If growing outdoors, choose a well-drained location with room for the plant to spread, as mature Bird of Paradise plants can be quite large. When planting in a container, select a pot with good drainage.

  4. Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist during the growing season (spring and summer). Water less frequently during the dormant period (fall and winter) and allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your Bird of Paradise with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season to promote healthy growth and flowering.

  6. Temperature: Bird of Paradise prefers warm temperatures and does not tolerate frost. Keep it in a location where temperatures stay above 50°F (10°C).

  7. Pruning: Prune dead or damaged leaves as needed. Be cautious when handling the plant, as the leaves can be sharp.

  8. Pests and Diseases: Bird of Paradise is relatively pest-resistant, but occasionally, you may encounter mealybugs or scale insects. Monitor your plant regularly and address any issues promptly.

  9. Repotting: Repot young Bird of Paradise plants every 2-3 years to provide them with fresh soil and space for growth. Mature plants may require less frequent repotting.

  10. Flowering: While Bird of Paradise is renowned for its ornate flowers, it may take several years for the plant to mature and bloom. Be patient, as the stunning blossoms are well worth the wait.

Strelitzia reginae, the Bird of Paradise or Crane Flower, is a captivating tropical plant that adds an exotic flair to your indoor or outdoor garden. By following these cultivation tips and providing the right care, you can enjoy the beauty and elegance of this iconic plant in your living space.
