At Soto we want to make looking after your plants as easy and enjoyable as possible. The White Bird of Paradise profile will help you get to know your new plant.


The Strelitzia nicolai, commonly known as the White Bird of Paradise or Banana Plant is native to costal areas of South Africa. 

It thrives in warm and humid conditions, so it is important to place in a sunny spot and spritz the leaves to create a humid environment. 

Be careful though, overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's crucial not to let the soil stay constantly soggy. Reduce watering in the winter when the plant's growth slows down.

The leaves of this popular houseplant are arranged in a fan-like pattern and can grow up to 3 meters in length, giving the plant a tropical and exotic appearance. 

Remove any yellow or damaged leaves regularly. Pruning can also be done to control the plant's size and shape. New growth typically emerges from the centre of the plant.

As the plant grows, it may benefit from staking or support to keep it upright.
