Bird of Paradise

Natural Habitat:South Africa 

Water Needs: Watering too much or too often will cause the plant to rot. Allow the top 1-2" of soil to dry out almost completely before watering thoroughly 

Light Needs: Greatly prefers high, direct light. Will tolerate indirect, bright light

Food Needs: Feed with an all-purpose houseplant food every two weeks during the growing season (April-September), and once a month during the Winter.

Humidity: Prefers some humidity, you may want to consider using a pebble tray to promote a humid microclimate

Flowering: Birds of Paradise generally do not flower this far north, especially when kept indoors. When presented with perfect conditions (light, humidity, watering schedule), your BoP may flower, but this is extremely rare.
