Q.Growing Bird Of Paradise In FL
I live in central FL. My bird of paradise plant is in a pot that receives full sun in the afternoon. The leaves have been curling inward and look like long points. It would appear the location is the problem but I thought the plant needs full sun at some point during the day. I intend to add the plant to the landscaping, and now don’t know what location would be best. The plant is definitely stressed.
