17in 6ft Bird of Paradise
6ft tall Bird of Paradise in a 17in plastic pot.
Light: Direct Sun
One of the few indoor plants that prefers direct sun. Best directly in front of an unobstructed South or West window.
Water roughly every 10-14 days. Likes to dry out a couple inches between waterings - be careful not to overwater.
Soil: A well draining indoor mix with lots of perlite and worm castings
Toxicity Level: Toxic to animals if ingested.
Additional Information: Leaves tend to collect dust - wipe with a wet microfiber cloth or soft duster monthly. Splitting leaves is normal - splits are an evolutionary adaptation of the plant that allow wind to pass through the leaves.
Plant Health: At Paraíso we go above and beyond to ensure our plants are healthy and ready to thrive indoors. We hand-spray every surface of each plant with organic cold-pressed Neem Oil. Neem is an organic horticultural oil that is a highly effective pest control and preventative. It's safe for humans and bees, and helps to ensure your plant's long-term health.
We strive for our plants to be the healthiest and most lush around because we care deeply about plant health.
