Follow the instructions below and your Bird of Paradise will thrive by your side for years! All plants experience some shock when moved around and may take a bit of time to adjust to their new environment in your home, but the Bird of Paradise – like all our plants – is strong and adaptable, so take care of it and give it patience and it will reward you with its beauty.


The Bird of Paradise thrives in locations with lots of bright light. It is also one of few indoor plants that can handle direct sunlight.


Water your plant weekly, about 2-3 cups should be good for the Large Bird of Paradise, but it really depends on the humidity and temperature of your space. More light + dry air = more water. Less light + moist air = less water.

A reliable way to tell if your plant has enough to drink is to feel 2 inches deep into the soil under the decorative moss. If completely dry, time to water! If still moist, hold off.

Other Things To Know

Avoid cold drafts, and keep temperature between 60 - 75 degrees.

Trim off any dead, damaged or yellowing leaves and stems as close to the root clump as possible.

It's recommended to keep this plant out of direct reach of pets and children, they may get slightly irritated if ingested.
