Where to grow:

For Birds of Paradise plants to grow well, they need bright, indirect light with some bright, direct light. The best place for them is near a south-facing window, where they can get a few hours of direct sunlight in the morning or evening but are protected from the strong sun during the middle of the day..

Temperature and humidity:

As a tropical plant it prefers warm and humid environments. Ideal temperatures range between 60 - 80 degrees F. Birds of Paradise prefers high humidity similar to its native habitat, but is tolerant of average air. For dryer climates like Nevada, It's best to have a room humidifier, use a pebble tray, or mist the plant a number of times throughout the day.

Soil type:

A well-draining potting soil with peat, perlite, or sand is perfect for growing a Bird of Paradise plant. This type of soil promotes healthy root development and ensures sufficient aeration. This also prevents waterlogging and provides a balanced environment for your Bird of Paradise to flourish.


Pot requirements:

Always use a larger pot due to the size of this plant. Make sure it has plenty of room to grow with adequate drainage holes for proper watering and soil.




Bird of Paradise needs to be watered regularly to grow well, but too much water can cause the roots to rot. The best way to water is to let the top inch of soil dry out before adding more water. This plant likes to stay moist all the time, but not so much that it gets soaked.


 Regular fertilization is great, especially during their active growth period in spring and summer. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, and dilute it to half-strength. Fertilize every two weeks during the growing season and reduce the frequency to once a month in fall and winter.


The key to pruning an indoor birds of paradise plant is to remove any dead, damaged, or ugly foliage in order to preserve the plant's look and health.  Trim off any stems or leaves that are turning brown or yellow with care using sharp, clean pruning scissors.


Repotting is typically done when the plant has outgrown its current pot or the soil has become compacted, making it difficult for water to penetrate through the root system.  The best time to repot is during the spring or early summer months when the plant is growing.
