Sun: Direct & Indirect

The Bird of Paradise thrives with partial direct sunlight and also flourishes in bright, indirect light. Optimal placement involves receiving gentle morning sunlight or a few hours of afternoon sun, followed by indirect light for the remainder of the day.

Light: Bright

For optimal growth, Bird of Paradise plants thrive in bright light. Ideal indoor locations include a sunny window sill or a stool positioned next to a window, with or without blinds, depending on the plant's sun tolerance. Keep in mind that plant growth is influenced by the amount of light it receives.

Water: When half dry

Bird of Paradise should be watered when the top half of the soil feels dry to the touch, typically occurring every week in a standard home setting. However, factors such as seasonal changes, environmental conditions, and lighting may influence watering frequency. To ensure proper hydration, it's advisable to err on the side of underwatering and check the soil's moisture level before watering again.

Humidity: Medium

The Bird of Paradise thrives in environments with average humidity levels, although it will benefit from a slight increase in humidity. Consider misting the plant daily or using a humidifier to create an optimal growing environment.

Pet Friendly: Caution

Bird of Paradise is moderately toxic and can cause adverse reactions if ingested, making it advisable to keep it away from pets. While the severity of the reaction depends on the amount consumed, if your pet doesn't typically chew on plants, Bird of Paradise can still be a suitable addition to your home.

Pro Tip

The naturally occurring split leaves of the Bird of Paradise plant contribute to its distinctive avian appearance. Scientifically, this leaf division is thought to serve a purpose, possibly aiding in reducing wind resistance. Given optimal conditions such as ample southern sunlight exposure, appropriate humidity levels, and consistent temperature, indoor Bird of Paradise plants may even bloom.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
