Fast Growing | Tropical Stunner | Low Maintenance

Ever had the urge to move to the tropics and sip fruity cocktails on the beach for the rest of your life? Well, having a bird of paradise in your home is about as close as you can get to that without all the drama of uprooting your family and leaving your life behind. 

Bird of Paradise plants are quite low maintenance and will grow best in a sunny spot - we'd recommend placing it less than 5 feet from a bright window where. Fruity cocktails (for you) and imagining you're in a tropical paradise are highly recommended for maximum enjoyment.

Leaf splits, especially on a mature plant like this one, is a natural and common trait of this plant. If you see some splits in the leaves, there's no cause for concern as this is an adaptation that the plant has developed to handle strong winds in the wild.
