Caring for your Bird of Paradise
Light - Your Bird of Paradise can thrive in direct and indirect light conditions.
Water - Water your Bird of Paradise once every week or two. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Water more often in warm and bright light conditions and less in cooler and lower light conditions. It can be sensitive to hard tap water, so either used filtered tap water or simply leave the water out overnight before watering the plant.
Top Tip - The ends of the leaves will naturally split! This is normal and is an evolutionary process whereby the plant has learned to survive in high winds. If the lower leaves are yellowing you are overwatering!
