What can I do? I have just gotten a bird of paradise plant, and as soon as I got it home, its leaves started to rip and curl inwards and got brownish in color.
Bird of Paradise Leaves Rolling and Brown
If the leaves turn black and curl up, the plant is probably being kept too cold. Make sure it isn't too close to a window. It prefers warm temps like between 65 and 75 degrees.
If the leaves stay green but curl up, that is a sign of too little light. Try and keep the plant within 5 feet of a window that provides at least 4 hours of direct sunlight a day for best results.
