Strelitzia Reginae:

  • Origin: Originally from South Africa, now widespread in tropical and sub-tropical areas
  • Family: Belongs to the banana family, evident in the similar leaf shape
  • Pollination: Flowers are pollinated by sunbirds such as colibri or hummingbirds
  • Flower Description: Three brilliant orange sepals and three purplish-blue petals, with two blue petals forming an arrow-like nectary
  • Included: 10 seeds, oval zinc tub, soil and cocopress tablet

Cultivation:

  • Seed Preparation: Remove the orange tuft of hair (Aril) from seeds
  • Soaking: Soak seeds in warm water for 24 hours, starting with hot water that cools slowly
  • Planting:
    • Place small pebbles or coarse gravel in the zinc tray for drainage
    • Fill with soil mixture
    • Spread seeds over the soil surface and push them in to a depth of 0.5 cm
    • Spray soil with water and cover tray with cling film to retain moisture
    • Place in a well-lit, warm position (at least 25°C)
    • Check periodically to ensure soil remains moist
  • Germination: Can take 3-5 months; patience and care are essential
  • Transplanting: Once tiny leaves appear, transplant into flowerpots (10-12 cm diameter)
    • When plants are larger, move to a bigger pot or decorative container
  • Watering and Care:
    • Provide plenty of water and a well-lit position
    • Add liquid fertilizer to water weekly from spring to early autumn
    • Ensure good drainage; the plant does not like 'wet feet'
    • During summer, place outside on a terrace or veranda
    • During colder periods, bring indoors
    • During hibernation, reduce watering; browning of leaf ends is normal
  • Flowering: Begins in the fourth year
