Pruning a Strellis Regina “Bird of Paradise”

We have just purchased a Strellis Regina “Bird of Paradise” and we would appreciate advice on (1) dealing with dead flowers, (2) when and how to prune?
Any advice is most welcome
Thanks Trevor Watts

    Strelitzia reginae....Never tried to grow it but dead flowers can be cut off.
    I have never seen one pruned...they just keep growing into bigger plants/clumps.

    More help /advice on RHS.

  • Thanks Silver-surfer for your words of wisdom and the link to the RHs site.
    We are putting our plant now outside during the day as the weather warms up and there is plenty of sunshine...bringing it in a night.
