Water requirements of the Strelitzia Reginae - 170cm
The Strelitzia Reginae is a large houseplant and therefore requires a lot of water, especially in the summer months. When watering the Strelitzia Reginae, give it enough water so that the soil is completely dry after about a week. Check this in the beginning, and after watering every other day, feel how the soil is doing. If, after three days, you feel that the soil is dry again, then water more if necessary to keep the Strelitzia Reginae healthy. In the winter months the soil can be a little dry before the next watering, as the Strelitzia Reginae uses less water in the winter months. Be careful not to over-water in the winter months as this can lead to root rot. We also recommend watering the Strelitzia Reginae once a week. This helps keep the plant healthy, removes dust from the leaves and acts as a preventative measure against pests.
