Vibrant and tropical, Bird of Paradise make the perfect addition to any botanical home.
Bird of Paradise are native to South Africa and so require lots of sun. Place near a south-facing window and watch it grow.
Brown spots and crispy edges indicate a thirsty plant. Use a moisture meter or stick your finger down to the second knuckle into the soil. If your finger come out dry then it's time for a drink. If your finger is covered in wet soil then it's best to leave it alone.
Leaves browning at the edges can be an early sign of fertiliser burn, under watering, or dry air. Try using filtered water, wiping down leaves, or placing near a humidifier.
If your plant has reached maturity and doesn't show signs of blooming it may be due to a lack of light, lack of fertilizer, and/or too big a pot. Bird's of paradise need crowded roots before to begin the blooming process.
