Let op, belangrijk!
Strelitzia's often have a number of cracks in their leaves, this is normal and is especially the case with larger specimens.
Lower leaves eventually die off so the strelitzia grows.

We always recommend to immediately repot a purchased plant into a larger sized pot, because the pots sold are usually completely rooted. It allows the plant to root more, grow more and it's better for keeping the soil moist.

Most often the plant is around the minimum size. The height of the plant is always incl. pot height. Its actual height depends on the various sources of supply and how long the plant has been staying and growing in our stock environment.

Let your plant shine

A plant enhances the atmosphere much more and becomes more beautiful with a decorative pot that matches both the plant and its space. The recommended diameter of a pot for this Strelitzia nicolai is 17 - 18 cm. This is not only an eye-pleasing proportion, but also makes caring for the plant more easy.

Pay attention

Strelitzia's often have a number of cracks in their leaves, this is normal and is especially the case with larger specimens. Lower leaves eventually die off so the strelitzia grows.

Watering

This plant should be watered regularly. During sunny periods we recommend watering every day. During less sunny periods we recommend watering once every 3 days, unless it has rained.

Placement

This plant should be placed in a place where the sun shines a lot. The more sun, the faster its growth, but also the more moisture it needs.

Nutrition

Nutrition is very important for plants. We recommend the use of high quality Mediterranean nutrient tablets, which you simply press into the soil next to the plant. This will provide the plant with all the necessary nutrients and the plant will keep its dark green leaf colour.

Cutting

Pruning a palm is simple. When a leaf starts to dry out, the fairly thick branch near the trunk should be trimmed with e.g. pruning shears. The palm gets new shoots every year that grow into large fan leaves.

Frequently asked questions / FAQ

What does Strelitzia mean?

The Strelitzia is also called the flower of paradise, but is actually called the bird of paradise flower, because its head resembles a bird of paradise. In some countries this plant is also called the bird's head flower, and in South Africa they call it Crane Flower.

Are Strelitzia's poisonous to cats or dogs?

Strelitzia's are non-toxic and can therefore be placed in places where dogs and cats often come.

Are the roots of the Strelitzia jumpy/growing?

Roots of the Strelitzia are rather intrusive and are best kept away from buildings, or plants with weaker root systems. Otherwise the Strelitzia can cause damage. Root limiter or a pot can help.

Is the Strelitzia hardy? Can it withstand the frost?

The Strelitzia can't get over freezing. A Strelitzia has to be brought in close to freezing point.

Can the Strelitzia grow in a pot?

The Strelitzia can easily be kept in a pot. It may not grow as big or as fast as in open ground, but with good care it will become a beautiful plant, because we sell the most beautiful specimens in pots!

Can the Strelitzia grow in?

The Strelitzia has no problem growing indoors, but does like lots of light, so put it in a place with plenty of sunlight. And always make sure the root ball is moist.

What's the difference between the 'nicolai' and the 'reginae'?

The difference can mainly be seen in the leaves. The nicolai gets wider, more supple leaves of a lighter color. The reginae gets narrower, stiffer leaves that are more upright.

Can a Strelitzia be stung?

Yes, Strelitzia's can be stabbed. You do that with clean tools. You stab this plant by cutting off shoots from the root system. The wound that develops should be helped with cutting powder.

Can you split a Strelitzia?

Yeah, split up is how the Strelitzia gets stabbed.

Can you grow a Strelitzia from seed?

Yes you can make a Strelitzia grow from seed, but that requires a lot of patience, because the germination of the Strelitzia takes a very long time.

Does a Strelitzia have to be pruned?

When the Strelitzia gets brown tips, or dry leaves, you can cut them off. We recommend cutting at least 2cm from the core, because if there is an infection, the plant will give up 2cm. If you cut near the stem, the infection will retract the plant deeper with possible damage as a result.

How should a Strelitzia be taken care of?

A Strelitzia loves a good nutrient soil, so we recommend Florentus Mediterranean soil, which allows it to root well and is provided with the right nutrient base. We also recommend regular watering with Ultra Focus, special nutrition for Mediterranean plants, which helps to make them strong, keep them and retain their beautiful colours. Always keep the root ball well moist, but never soaking it wet. At lower temperatures, the plant needs less moisture. Always cut dry leaves as described above.

How do you get a Strelitzia to bloom?

Under good conditions, the Strelitzia will have flowers. To make this optimal, we recommend the following: Give the Strelitzia a spot with as much sunlight as possible. Ensure good nutrition during the growing season. And make sure the roots are bounded, then they tend to flower more.

What kind of soil do Strelitzia's need?

The Strelitzia can already grow and flower with medium quality potting soil, but you can enhance health and colour by using high quality Mediterranean soils and supplementary nutrients (Ultra Focus).

Does a Strelitzia also need extra food?

In principle, a Strelitzia can grow and flower well without extra nutrition, but it does help to apply nutrition. However, we do not recommend drugs such as Pokon, because they give a boost in the beginning, but do damage over the long term. High quality complex nutrition such as Ultra Focus for Mediterranean plants, on the other hand, works very well over the long term.

Where should a Strelitzia be planted?

The Strelitzia likes a warm light spot with little wind. Also keep in mind that a Strelitzia should not be in the freezing cold.

What's the best place to buy a Strelitzia?

We have a very simple answer to this question. Teeninga Palmen is a specialist in hardy Mediterranean plants and trees, and offers them for the lowest price and the highest quality, so the choice is easy!

What is the growth area of the Strelitzia?

The Strelitzia grows mainly in the Eastern coastal areas of South Africa, where they grow wild in strelitzias forests of kilometres wide and long.

Our plant sizes are determined by measuring the smallest plants up until the largest in a field with hundreds of plants. Because a plant is a natural product, it's possible a plant is a little smaller than the mentioned minimum size.

This deviation is 10cm maximum. In our guidelines we keep a margin of max. 10cm regarding the minimum size.

Note: when you order a plant that doesn't stay green in the winter, it's probably (when ordered during the winter months or the beginning spring season) smaller than the minimum size. This is not a problem in any case, because the plant will grow new branches or leaves and the minimum height will be reached within a short period. Your order will have the right size within a short time.
