YOU PICKED THIS CUTE PLANT:

Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia reginae)

These regal plants (for which they are named, reginae) are thus named for the beautiful, crane-like flowers that they produce. If given full, southern exposure, proper humidity, and temperature, they may flower indoors. This plant’s scientific name commemorates Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen consort and wife of King George III. Queen Charlotte was a patron of the arts and an amateur botanist, and helped to greatly expand Kew Gardens.

PLANT ORIGINS

South Africa

The Plant Care

Light

High to medium light. Direct sunlight ideal.

Water

Water weekly. Allow potting mix to dry out before watering. Soil about 1-2” down should be dry to touch. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Generally, the plant will droop to show that it needs more water.

Extra Love

If the leaves turn yellow, it's a sign you may be overwatering. Take a break and check the soil later in the week.

The Pots

Ceramic

Made by Modernica for the perfect mid-century modern fit. This planter looks amazing pretty much everywhere. This planter is made by ridiculously good potters in Vietnam and it shows.
