Strelitzia nicolai "Bird of Paradise"
Beautiful easy going plants usually coming in around 4-5 feet tall! In the wild, the leaves are made to tear at the veins as to create passage for strong winds as to not break the whole leaf. Named the "Bird of Paradise" for the incredibly unique flower that looks like an exotic bird! Though it is more closely related to bananas than it is a bird.
These need a bright indirect light. They do not do well in a lower light space. They can go roughly 3-4" dry from the top of the soil between waterings, but not all the way. This may be every 10-12 days. When repotting, use a semi-coarse or chunky soil medium.
