Fast Growing | Tropical Stunner | Low Maintenance

Ever had the urge to move to the tropics and sip fruity cocktails on the beach for the rest of your life? Well, having a bird of paradise in your home is about as close as you can get to that without all the drama of uprooting your family and leaving your life behind. 

Perdy is extremely low maintenance. She'll like a sunny spot so we would recommend placing her less than 5 feet from a South, West, or East facing window. She can survive in lower light rooms as well and will need watering once every few weeks. Fruity cocktails (for you) and imagining you're in a tropical paradise are highly recommended for maximum enjoyment.

Native to: South Africa

Also known as Strelitzia Nicolai, White Bird of Paradise, Banana Leaf Plant.

Leaf splits, especially on a mature plant like this one, is a natural trait of this plant. If you see some splits in the leaves, there's no cause for concern as this is an adaptation that the plant has developed to handle strong winds in the wild.

Fun Facts

· Although she doesn't bear any fruit, Perdy is a cousin to the banana tree and they are very similar in appearance. 🍌
