Birds of Paradise

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Viridescent | Lush | Noticeable

Birds of Paradise are the ultimate "tropical" aesthetic addition and look amazing in just about any collection!

This plant will grow a handful of large leaves, occasionally shooting out a new one every so often as it matures - but of course the flowers are the real show! They bloom quite often, at least once a year, and will bloom more readily if given plenty of sun and fertilizer.

Propogate easily by placing a cutting in water and allowing to root.

Lighting: Bright, direct light.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist, but don't allow for standing water.

Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich, organic, well draining soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic or sealed concrete. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recommended for steady growth and to promote richer coloration in the foliage.

Temperature: Room temp (60-85 degrees is ideal), protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter.

Toxicity: Unsafe for consumption in pets and humans.
