Plant Overview

Upgrade your urban jungle to a tropical paradise with the Bird of Paradise. Native to South Africa, this luxurious house plant can grow taller than you if you’ll let it. It has huge, glossy banana tree-like leaves and exquisite flowers which will happily bloom inside if your plant gets plenty of light. Offer a few hours of direct sunlight each day and watch your Bird of Paradise come to life. 

PlantX Top Tip: Remove brown or damaged leaves immediately. This will reduce the risk of fungal organisms making themselves at home, and keep your Bird of Paradise looking majestic! 

How to Care for Bird of Paradise

  • Light: Bright indirect light to filtered light, with a few hours of direct sunlight each day.
  • Water: Prefers evenly damp-moist soil. 
  • Humidity: Prefers humidity between 55% - 75%.
  • Temperature: Average from 18°C to 24°C.
  • Fertilizer: Use a monthly balancing fertilizer (such as a 10:10:10) during the spring and summer growing season. 
  • Propagation: Division of corms. 
  • Repotting: Repot every 12-18 months if you want your plant to grow tall. Choose a pot that is 5cm larger in diameter than the previous pot. 
  • Cleaning Tip: Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust. Get rid of yellowing leaves as soon as you notice them. 
  • Toxicity: Toxic. Keep away from pets and children. 

Bird of Paradise - Common Problems

Why are there spots on the leaves of my Bird of Paradise?

Spots on the Bird of Paradise’s leaves can signify a number of problems. Inspect the plant’s growing conditions and ask: is the plant receiving too much direct light each day? If so, place it in a spot with bright, indirect light. Can you spot any pests? If so, treat these. Does your tap water contain high amounts of chlorine? Try watering with collected rainwater or distilled water.

The leaves of my Bird of Paradise have brown tips. What’s going on? 

Browning leaf tips are a sign that the humidity is too low. Increase the humidity by regular misting or installing a humidifier and watch your Bird of Paradise return to its glossy, green self.

Why does my Bird of Paradise keep losing its leaves? 

As a plant matures, leaves will turn yellow and die. This is a natural process. Don’t worry about it and enjoy watching your plant change and grow. 

Signs of Overwatering

New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests

May attract spider mites, mealybugs, and scale.

Can the Bird of Paradise tolerate full sun? 

Yes. In the wild, the Bird of Paradise thrives in its native South Africa, in the coastal areas of the Western Cape. Closer to home, it is a popular ornamental outdoor plant in Florida and California. That’s a whole lot of sun. In your home, make sure your Bird of Paradise gets a few hours of direct bright sunlight each day for optimum growing conditions.
