Facts about your Bird of Paradise

The Bird of Paradise is native to South Africa and has been grown in the Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew for over 300 years. It has long been associated with various Royal Families, but more importantly for all plant lovers it is now available for yours truly!

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!

All our plants come with a physical care card, you can also see more information about how to look after your plant and our handy infographic care guides on our plant care page.


Our Green Packaging.

When you buy a plant from Canopy Plants you can be sure we have done our very best to keep your purchase green. Our packaging is sustainably sourced and 100% recyclable or compostable.

All our paper and card is recycled and sustainably sourced.

It wouldn’t be right to be cutting down trees to sell plants!

We don’t use any single use plastic.

When we send your plant to you the pot and roots will be wrapped in a bag that looks like it is made of plastic - it is actually a totally compostable potato starch bag! You can put it in your council compost bin. They are also suitable for home composting.

For fragile items we use potato starch protective peanuts, just wash them down the sink!

Peat free.

We only use peat free compost at our studio. 60% to 70% of our plants are grown in peat free compost and we are pushing to get that to 100% as soon as we can.

Our future totally plastic free.

Our dream is to run a 100% plastic free business, but this is very hard in the business of plants because all of our suppliers use plastic pots. We are working on a ‘Pass on Plastic’ scheme where we give you the option to make your order completely plastic free and we return the plastic pots to our suppliers.
