NYC and NJ plant parents must let the tropical Bird of Paradise (large) into their collection. Naturally from South Africa, this tropical beauty thrives best in bright sunlight and humid temperatures but will adapt to other light and humidity conditions. You can “mist” the plant with a spray bottle to imitate the humidity in central America.
It Gives You Wings
The Bird of Paradise has long clumps of oval-shaped leaves that remind onlookers of a bird’s wings. As the plant ages, the massive leaves will eventually split. When the plant is in its natural habitat outdoors, it can bloom majestic, orange flowers that look like ‘birds of paradise’. Unfortunately, when grown indoors, there isn’t enough light to activate the flower bloom.
A Royal Namesake
Also known as theStrelitzia reginae(reginae meaning queen), the Bird of Paradise is a gorgeous, island plant that’s thought of as houseplant royalty. It’s so named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Queen to King George III.
The "Banana Tree"
Some people mistake the plant for a “banana tree” because of its resemblance to banana plants. The leaves are shaped and fan out much like those from banana plants. The broad, emerald foliage and naturally split leaves contribute to airflow and to its lush appearance.

My Bird of Paradise was carefully wrapped and inspected before it was delivered and arrived looking very healthy and vibrant. A NYC gem compared to other over priced trendy plant spots. Great prices and service! Will definitely buy more plants from Dahing!
Beautiful plant and the quick local shipping was a plus. Definitely will be ordering more from dah ling!
For the most part, everything was great. Ordering, Notifications & Delivery. My only issues is that when I removed the paper that was around the plant, one branch of the plant completely fell out, roots and all and soil all over the floor. I am sure the soil is loose to make it easier to transfer to a regular pot, but maybe if taller plants could be made a bit more secure.
I love this bird of paradise - absolutely beautiful
Beautiful large bird of paradise arrived within days of placing my order. Really happy with the condition of the plant and the pretty white ceramic planter it arrived in. Will order again!
The Bird of Paradise arrived so healthy—it's extremely full and lush. I'm really impressed by the quality of this plant (and the value for the price!)
