Strelitzia Nicolai or Bird of Paradise is a natural wonder and the queen of the indoor plant world. Often mistaken as banana tree, Strelitzia are tropical plants native to South Africa. This regal beauty goes by the name “Bird of Paradise” because of its flower that looks like one (It’s rare that they flower indoors but with a green thumb you can make it happen). Popular among interior designers, this large upright plant gives a tropical flair to your space as its glossy banana-shaped leaves fan out from long stalks.
