Bird of Paradise

Zone 30028 | Anonymous added on March 28, 2017 | Answered

I purchased a beautiful Bird of Paradise plant last year. After bringing it inside for winter, it has developed strangely shaped leaves and I have had to trim most of the old leaves off. Should I cut it off at the base and let it start fresh this summer or just wait and let it re-leaf on its own? The new growth seems small and stunted.

Lack of sunlight is the cause of the distorted leaves.
