The exotic Strelitzia Nicolai steals the show in every interior. This houseplant is originally from South Africa and is also called white Bird of Paradise. Its large green leaves give your interior a real jungle vibe. The Strelitzia is a family of the Musaceae, the family that also includes the banana plant. And just like the banana plant, the Strelitzia Nicolai has an air-purifying effect. This means that it produces extra oxygen and breaks down harmful substances! Good to know: it is an ideal plant for your bedroom, because cold is not a problem. The outer leaves of the Strelitzia Nicolai can turn brown after a while. This is a natural process and nothing to worry about. Those leaves may be removed.
The taupe terracotta pot included with the Strelitzia Nicolai fits into almost any interior. The universal brown-grey colour is very easy to combine.
Along with the delivery of this indoor plant you’ll naturally receive more plant care information, so you may enjoy it for as long as possible. Every plant has its own care preferences. And precisely because everything you need to know about this indoor plant is included, it’s also an ideal gift to send to someone else!
Keep the potting soil slightly moist.
Place the plant in a light or mildly sunny spot (make sure the plant isn’t placed in the hot afternoon sun during summer!)
Please note: The Strelitzia’s leaves tear quickly, this is normal and not harmful to the plant. The outer leaves and edges can turn brown over time. This is a natural process that unfortunately cannot be helped. You can remove brown edges by cutting them off. You can also remove the entire leaf by cutting the leaf stem 2 cm above the core. Does your Strelitzia have brown spots on its leaves? This means that you’re most likely giving it too much water. Do the leaves have white spots on them? This is simply the limestone that the plant repels from its water, and can simply be removed with a damp cloth.
Plants and health:
In order for your house to become a home – a place where you can truly unwind – we believe the addition of plants to be indispensable. Plants are much more than just a nice addition to your interior; they actively break down harmful substances and turn CO₂ into oxygen. Because we believe that everyone is entitled to a beautiful and healthy living environment, we are happy to share our green must-haves with you!
Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
