Q.Re Bird of Paradise Plant

kaz1969 added on June 7, 2011 | Answered

I have had my bird of paradise plant or approximately 2 years. It is the giant variety. It sits on my window ledge. I noticed today that one of the big leaves at the top started to curl inwards. I try to keep it in as much sun as possible. I don’t have a garden. I keep the soil moist and mist the leaves regularly. Please help. Thanks.

This happens when they are not getting enough light. Move it to a location where it will get more or brighter light. If this is not possible, you will want to add supplemental light, like a flourecent light near it.
