Bird Of Paradise
Unique, gorgeous, and tropical -- meet the Bird of Paradise. These regal plants are named for the elegant, orange paper crane-like flowers they produce. Pairs well with mid-century modern furniture and light reggae beats.
Light: Thrives in bright indirect light to the full sun when acclimated. Not suited for low light conditions.
Water: Water every 7 days, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. The soil should never dry out completely as this plant likes to be evenly moist, but not wet. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Pro tip: Birds of Paradise can benefit from filtered water or water left out overnight before using.
Origin: The wilds of South Africa

Each plant will come with its own personalized care card, which will have instructions and some recommendations on how to best keep your plants in the condition they arrived.
Cleaning Leaves: Be sure to remove any build up of dust or household debris. We recommend checking the leaves at least once a month.
Fertilizer: Most houseplants can be fed with organic fertilizer during the active growing months of spring and summer for an extra boost. Liquid or slow release fertilizer are best for indoor plants. Watch for browning leaf tips as a sign of over-fertilizing.
Repotting: Most plants won't mind being a little root bound, and some actually prefer it. Always use fresh soil when repotting your plants. Fast growing plants in smaller pots will need repotting every 12 months, and slow growing plants or larger specimens won't require a bigger pot more than every 18-24 months.
