Q.Bird of Paradise

Anonymous added on March 26, 2014 | Answered

I have several birds of paradise planted outside around pool. The leaves are beginning to turn light brown and curl in upon themselves. I don’t know how or when to prune, to remove old dead bird heads. Information would be greatly appreciated.

This is a sign of under watering. Increase water to the plant. Prune away any brown leaves. These are dead and will not recover but anything that is green should grow back just fine.
