Bird of Paradise Care
Fill your space with the majesty beauty of the White Bird of Paradise. Its wide, oval leaves offer lush greenery and offer a presence every plant lover craves in their home.
To keep your Bird looking its best year-round, we recommend the following tips and tricks for care.
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.
Humidity: The Bird of Paradise appreciates the occasional misting, which also helps remove the dust from its glossy dark leaves.
Fertilizer: The 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.
