Bird of Paradise Care Guide

Light Requirements

Bright, indirect light to dappled sun

The leaves on the Bird of Paradise naturally split as it grows.

Watering Schedule

Weekly watering

Weekly, allowing the 2” soil to completely dry out between waterings. In winter, we recommend watering less frequently to prevent overwatering and root rot.


High humidity

Your Bird of Paradise will love being misted regularly and it will help it avoid crisping tips on its leaves.

Sad Plant Signs

Yellowing leaves, burnt tips, browning, droopy leaves

Yellowing leaves and burnt tips: too much direct light or under-watering. Browning, droopy leaves: overwatering.

Plant Bio

Bird of Paradise Plant, Strelitzia Nicolai

The Bird of Paradise is a species of evergreen tropical herbaceous plant, native to South Africa. Here in the coastal region of the eastern Cape, where the climate is mild and wet, the Bird of Paradise thrives. These tropical plants feel at home in high humidity, so make sure to mist regularly and leave 2” of its top soil to dry out between weekly waterings. Their large leaves that give the Bird of Paradise it’s bird-like form are believed to protect the plant from drag and tear in the wind. This variety is grown for its stunning foliage and does not flower.
