Plant: Strelitzia Nicolai

Strelitzia Nicolai, or white bird of paradise plant, is just like the Strelitzia Reginae from South Africa. Strelitzia Nicolai differs from Strelitzia Reginae because of its white flower. It is a very popular decorative plant that is often associated with a banana plant, because of it’s leaves, and a traveller’s palm, because of its stem.

Strelitzia Nicolai is a herb that can reach up to 2 meters in a pot, and 10 meters in it’s natural habitat.
