Cranerys's survival guide
We hear ya: Strelitzie Reginae sounds like people dressed as scientists for toothpaste ads. If so, you might dig this plant’s name in regular parlance: Bird of Paradise, or Crane Flower. Now, that’s a damn good superhero name! The nicknames come from two pretty neat design features: the plant looks like a birds head when it’s blossoming, and the flowers resemble feathers on a crane’s head (the bird, not the machine).

What makes Cranerys so special
Aside from its noble roots (ha), the Strelitzia is actually pretty down to earth (somebody’s on a streak today!) and easy to please. She is not fussy about her watering needs, as long as you don't overdo it. Just like climate change, though, sunburn is a real thing: if you leave your Strelitzia exposed to direct sunlight, it will suffer more than that time you tried a DIY wax job during the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. Instead, use indirect light, all year-round, and avoid temperatures below 10°C. Oh and a final, friendly advice: this plant is considered mildly toxic for cats, dogs and people. So, if your household has pets, children, adults on a plant-based diet or all of the above...you might want to get rid of them first!
