No two plants are alike! Plants are living things and, just like humans, they are unique and occasionally imperfect. The pictures on our website are representative of the plants we deliver, but there will always be differences in the size and shape of foliage. We hand-pick all the plants we sell to ensure the best possible quality, and our plant care team is available to answer any questions!

A tree planted for every indoor plant sold

When you buy a plant from us, we'll donate funds to plant a tree in a U.S. National Forest where it is most needed. We proudly support the efforts of the National Forest Foundation, which aims to help restore forests damaged by wildfires and other major impacts. Learn more →

A version of this care guide is included with each Bird of Paradise purchase

Follow the instructions below and you should not have problems with your Bird of Paradise. 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.

Light

The Bird of Paradise prefers bright indirect light and even direct sunlight is good for it.

Water

Water the soil evenly when the top inch of soil is dry, but do not oversaturate. This plant prefers to have slightly moist soil most of the time, but at the same time does not want to be drowned. As with all plants, avoid overwatering and drain any excess water from the bottom of the saucer, as standing water may cause root rot.

Other Things To Know

Avoid cold drafts, and keep temperature between 60-75 degrees. Feel free to trim off any dead or damaged 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 as it may slightly irritate them if ingested.
