heliconia and strelitzia


By Brenski

worcestershire, United Kingdom Gb


am begging for a little help and advice
just bought a heliconia (approx 5ft, with four flowers) and a strelitzia reginae (approx 18" plenty of leaves)

both are "as bought" ie - in their original 2 litre containers. have sited both in the hallway - gets afternoon sun (but not direct) daytime temp approx 65 degrees

any advice on care/watering/feeding etc would be greatly appreciated

many thanks




On the Strelitzia (Bird of Paradise) I only water mine when dry and keep it pot bound (only go up slightly) as the more pot bound the more flowers it produces.
