Tropical Stunner | Fast Grower | Low Maintenence

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.

Care

Difficulty: Easy - relatively low maintenance.

Water Check every 5-7 days and water when the top 2" of soil is dry.

Light

Fun Facts

· Perdy's Botanical name, Strelitzia Nicolai, commemorates Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, a former queen of Great Britain, and namesake of several Canadian landmarks including Queen Charlotte City in Haida Gwaii, BC, Queen Charlotte Channel between Bowen Island and West Vancouver, and Charlottetown, PEI.

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