Unusual, gorgeous, tropical. If you’ve ever mistaken a plant for a bird, or vice versa, you may have encountered a Bird of Paradise plant. Strelitzia reginae is a species of evergreen tropical herbaceous plant, native to South Africa. These regal plants (for which they are named, reginae) are named for the beautiful, orange crane-like flowers that they produce, like birds of paradise.

They love direct suns, but they'll also do well in indirect lights. Direct sunlight is required for them to bloom. For the foliage purpose, they do not need to see the sun directly.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that right next to a window.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering.
They like a little bit of humidity, give them a mist every 2 - 3 days.
Under the right conditions, including full, southern light exposure, proper humidity and temperature, Bird of Paradise may flower indoors. And the split leaves are totally normal, they give the Bird of Paradise plant it’s bird-like morphology is scientifically believed to be purposeful leaf tearing or losing of leaves to reduce drag in the wind.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
