Plant Growing Tips

Where to Grow

Bird of Paradise plants thrive in bright, indirect light but can also tolerate direct sunlight. They are ideal for outdoor gardens in sunny positions or indoors near large windows that receive plenty of light. Ensure they receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily for optimal flowering.

Temperature

Bird of Paradise plants prefer temperatures between 20-30°C. They are sensitive to frost and should be protected from cold weather. During winter, it is best to keep them indoors if temperatures drop below 10°C.

Humidity

These plants prefer moderate humidity levels. While they can tolerate lower humidity, they thrive best in environments with higher humidity. If kept indoors, consider misting the leaves regularly or placing a humidity tray nearby to increase moisture levels.

Soil Type

Bird of Paradise plants thrive in well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. A good mix includes garden soil, compost, and a bit of sand to improve drainage. The soil should be kept consistently moist but not waterlogged.
