We're excited to be showcasing our first variegated Strelitzia Nicolai here at The Plant Den, which has bands of yellow to lime green across the paddles of its leaves. Needless to say, this is a rare, statement plant that is distinctive and one of a kind.
Native to the hot coastal regions of Africa and Mexico, the Giant White Bird of Paradise makes a stunning architectural statement plant, with its wide, paddle shaped banana-like leaves atop tall, erect stems. This is a plant that want a LOT of light, so a South or East facing spot is essential. Growth is fairly rapid, so be sure you have enough space for this plant - it will reach for the skies!
Keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged throughout the growing season allowing the top few inches to dry out slightly between waterings, applying a balanced fertiliser every few weeks.
