Bird Of Paradise Plant’s Care Instructions:
Light: The Bird of Paradise can handle light levels from direct sunlight to low indirect light. However, it will flourish in a sunny spot.
Water: Keep the soil moist, but not soggy during the spring through fall. In the winter, allow two inches of soil to dry out between waterings. The Bird of Paradise cannot handle ‘wet feet’, meaning its roots should not sit in wet soil. It’s best to keep your Bird of Paradise on the dry side.
Fertilizer: our Bird of Paradise is a hungry plant because of how quickly it grows! During the spring and summer fertilize once a month with an all-purpose liquid feed. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.
Humidity: Your Bird of Paradise appreciates the occasional misting, which also helps remove the dust from its glossy dark leaves.
Temperature: Average indoor temperatures of 65-80 degrees are just fine for the Bird of Paradise. It does most of its growth in warmth and heat. Therefore, its growth will slow during the cooler winter months
