Information on plant sizes
All plants are measured from the bottom of the nursery pot to the tip of the plant and if a height is specified, this is an approximate height, not set in stone.

Strelitzia nicolai, also known as the Giant White Bird of Paradise plant. This stunning house plant is a perfect addition to any living space, bringing a sense of luxury and exoticism to your decor.
The Strelitzia nicolai is named after the wife of King George III, Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, and is native to South Africa. With its large, glossy, paddle-shaped leaves, this plant can grow up to 20 feet tall in its natural habitat, although it's typically much smaller when grown indoors.
One of the standout features of the Strelitzia nicolai is its unique flowers. During the summer months, it produces white and blue blooms that resemble the head of a crane, making it a conversation starter for any guests who visit your home. However, they rarely flower indoors unless they have the perfect conditions.
But beyond its eye-catching appearance, this plant also has several benefits for your indoor environment. The Strelitzia nicolai is known for its air-purifying qualities, removing harmful toxins from the air and improving overall air quality. It's also a low-maintenance plant, making it an ideal choice for those who want to add greenery to their homes without the hassle of constant upkeep.
In terms of care, the Strelitzia nicolai thrives in bright, indirect light and can tolerate some direct sunlight as well. It prefers well-draining soil and should be watered regularly but not overwatered. With the right care, this plant can grow and thrive for years to come, adding a touch of sophistication to your home.
It’s worth noting the leaves on these plants are sometimes split along the veins and some have crinkled edges. This is natural to the plant and completely normal and is more common as the plant gets older. In high traffic flow areas or drafty locations, more splitting will take place.
In summary, the Strelitzia nicolai is a stunning and low-maintenance house plant that is perfect for adding a touch of the tropics to your home decor. With its unique flowers and air-purifying qualities, it's a must-have for any plant lover. So why not bring a little bit of South Africa into your home today?
Fun fact: The Strelitzia nicolai is actually part of the same family as the banana plant!
Communication was hit and miss but overall experience was good. I was mostly impressed with the packaging and arrived well. My BOP plant once put up does not appear completely straight (bends more towards one side). All leaves are healthy which I was happy with.
