Birds of paradise are large, relatively easy to grow plants that lend a bold tropical flair to any indoor space. With proper care, a bird of paradise can grow to over six feet tall, even indoors. Its broad, arching leaves make a dramatic, graceful statement in your home. Strelitzia Nicolai, commonly known as the giant white bird of paradise or wild banana, is a common species for houseplants.
White Bird of Paradise is named for it’s regal, white bird-shaped flower. This plant does well with lots of bright light indoors or full sun outdoors. Not prone to insects or diseases, it’s very low maintenance. Large palm-shaped fronds taper down to thick green stalks that produce new leaves from the center of the plant. Typically, these plants are symmetrical, or very close to it. Flowers form when these plants are kept outdoors in full sun and are mature enough. White Bird of Paradise prefers to stay somewhat dry.
