Second leaf growing from my #birdofparadise I was so nervous when I first got this plant but I think I'm doing pretty good with its care and it's because of everyone on here. I have learned and grown so much. I appreciate all of you who I consider family now. Let's stop the hate and bullying . #plants #houseplant #plantgift #new-leaves #nobullying #stopthehate

@sherrisgarden Thanks love I'm really trying to come back on here more often and post. I've killed so many plants this year that I was losing my faith on keeping plants alive. Thanks for the encouragement 😘😘

Oh, fantastic! Sometimes they take awhile to bloom, but she will. Give her lots of sun and light. 🌞

Thank you @KariSamuel @lovestogarden Do I let it dry out before watering ? Does it need humidity do I spray it to keep humidity up? Thanks love

According to the encyclopedia, they need very little water, but I will let @lovestogarden answer further! Think #tropical with humidity! 🦩

Oh, i am not sure. I know that these did not mind our drought. We have very low humidity. You might need to research 🖥️ as it may be important to know about indoor growing. Sorry I do not know these answers. Try: https://homeguides.sfgate.com/can-grow-birds-paradise-plants-indoors-39738.html
