The Bird of Paradise plant is one of the most exciting houseplants or garden plant; if you are lucky to live in the tropics. The unique flower shape and blue to orange coloration really does resemble the beautiful Bird of Paradise (bird), and is always a delight to onlookers. The thick blue-green foliage is beautiful as an accent plant when out of bloom. Easily grown in containers with bright light and a consistent feeding schedule (see below). Equally easy in the landscape with proper fertilization and consistently moist soil. A very rewarding plant to try your green thumb out on. Once received pot up into a large pot (2 - 5 gallon soil volume recommended), or add to a tropical landscape.
