6-9ft £160 2-3 trunks in each pot The Bird of Paradise is one of the most well-known tropical houseplants. It looks a lot like the Banana plant and it's easy to confuse the two plants. Unlike most tropical plants, the Bird of Paradise is easy to take care of and is a great option for tropical plant-loving beginners. Like many other tropical plants, the Strelitzia prefers to be in moist soil most of the time. During the fall and winter, when your Strelitzia becomes dormant and doesn't use as much energy to grow, you can water less as well. You should still make sure the soil is moist all the time, but you can water a little less: about once per week. When you're watering your Bird of Paradise, make sure not to water too much. This plant doesn't like to sit in wet soil and this will cause root rot over time. A simple trick is to use a pot with a drainage hole to let the excess water escape from the pot. The Bird of Paradise loves bright sunlight, including direct sunlight.
