Bird of Paradise or Strelitzia Nicolai, this plant is stunning. Grows into super big plants and its leaves are just breathtaking. This plant also grows outside and it is quite hardy. We specially love when the leaves natural get cuts. This happens naturally as the leaves grow or sometimes while unfurling.
