White Birds of Paradise

Birds of Paradise have found enormous popularity as a houseplant for two simple reasons: they're easy and they can grow very large! They want a little more water than the average indoor foliage, preferring consistently damp soil that isn't allowed to dry out completely, but the small extra effort is rewarded quickly and dramatically with huge new leaves and beautiful flowers in the spring!

Best placed near a window that has bright light - and since this plant's foliage gets so big, it can actually act as a natural light filter for plants who want their light a little more indirect! Simply place those plants under this one and on the opposite side of the window, and voila: you have a tiny tropical forest setup!
