Not only is the bird of paradise (Strelitzia reginae) easy to grow and keep alive, but it also may be one of the most dramatic plants in your garden with its  spear  shaped leaves. Indoors or out, in the ground or in a container, bird of paradise will be happy and best of all, a very low maintenace plant.

Bird of Paradise



Outdoors, bird of paradise grows well in either full sun, with six to eight hours of direct sunlight, or in partial shade. Place your indoor plant wherever it will get the most light, except in very hot summer temperatures, where it will do best in bright, indirect light.


If your bird of paradise was not originally planted in rich, well-drained soil, consider repotting it help ensure that the plant stays in the very best health. If your bird of paradise is planted in the ground, add organic compost for poor soil and either perlite or sand to help with drainage. For potted plants, make sure that the drainage hole in the container is large enough to allow water to flow out.
