The Bird of Paradise is one of the most dramatic and gorgeous of houseplants. This plant can grow over ten feet tall, and under the right conditions, can produce its stunning avian bloom indoors. The leaves are wide and green, and during the summer, can be produced once every week or so. You can find this plant in pots as small as 6” and about 1’ tall. It reproduces by putting out “pups” or small baby plants that will grow beside the main plant, until they are large enough to be repotted alone. 


This plant grows outdoors in warm climates like South Florida, but is commonly found indoors across the world. It prefers rich and moist, well-draining soil and enjoys misting if housed inside. Bright direct sun to part shade are tolerated by the Bird of Paradise. 


There are two types of Bird of Paradise sold in the houseplant market - White Bird of Paradise and Orange Bird of Paradise. The White variety grows larger more quickly and produces wider and less leaves. The Orange variety grows much more slowly and produces much smaller leaves. Both grow in a similar manner and add beautiful greenery to your space. 


FUN FACT:

The reason this plant is called “Bird of Paradise” is because of its bloom. The multicolored flower appears to resemble a tropical parrot.

Perfect!

The plants are beautiful, and were both expertly packed for shipping and easy to assemble. When I called with questions (these are my first plants ever), they were so helpful and warm. Highly recommend ordering plants from Essencia Air!
