Q.Growing Bird Of Paradise In FL

Zone 32162 | alwaysinstitchesny added on January 24, 2022 | Answered

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.

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. This sounds more like an overwating issue, or soils that remain saturated without a chance to dry out. Leaves will role to remove extra humidity from the underside of the leaves.

I would make sure that the soil does have a little time to dry out down to about 2 or 3 inches between waterings. this can help.

Here are some articles that will help you to know what care these plants require:
