Can someone help me identify this plant:
Perhaps peace lilly (spathiphyllum)? Looks very big though, they are usually smaller, so not sure.
I've seen the peace lilly, this one is different and this doesn't bloom either. Just occasionally grows another stalk/leaf, always taller than the one before. It's in the garage now, and the kitty is just fine, thank goodness. Thanks for your help!
That's a Strelitzia nicolai, White Bird of Paradise. Needs a lot more sun, and then the stalks will grow shorter but with a much wider, luxurious leaf. :)
It's never bloomed though. Do you still think that's it?
It's also known as the giant bird of paradise, so it doesn't usually flower until it is tree-size, many times larger than what you have there. That's a baby. :)
Then it's an outdoor plant? I'll let the new owner know. Thanks!
Outdoors if you're in a warm area, USDA z9 or warmer. Is that Prescott AZ? You should be fine there.
Make the transition very slowly. Any plant grown in shade can't be thrown straight into the sun or it will severely burn the leaves. :)
