The bird of paradise may be grown both indoors and outdoors. This exotic plant gives visually stunning flowers. It has stiff, erect, leathery, concave, and oblong leaves borne on a long leafstalk. The leaves are bluish-green and may sometimes have a red midrib.
The split leaves give the plant its “bird-like” morphology. The plant should be watered once every 1-2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out between watering.
