How to Grow Strelitzia Tropical Bird of Paradise from Seeds

This plant needs bright light, even including some direct sunlight, to bloom well. However, it requires shelter in direct midday summer sun.


Keep the soil continually moist throughout the year. Bird of paradise prefers high humidity.


Keep the air temperature above 60 F in the winter.

This is not a cold-tolerant plant, and it recovers slowly from frost damage.


Use rich, well-drained potting mix.


Feed in springtime with slow-release pellets or weekly during growing season with liquid fertilizer.
