So while I previously gave some attention to my favourite indoor plant, the Fiddle Leaf Ficus, there is a new kid in town!

Tropical, especially the Banana Leaf, is the hot trend at the moment, and here is how you can get the look in your house.  Surprisingly not with an indoor banana plant, but a giant Bird of Paradise!

Bird of Paradise – or commonly known in South Africa, as a Strelitzia makes a great indoor plant, with the added benefit of the beautiful orange flowers in season.  Looking almost identical to a banana plant, but being a completely different plant species, their main difference is the fact that well… the strelitzia does not make bananas  – did not need a degree in botany for that observation 🙂


Feel like living in an endless summer…
