Common Problems

📌 The Bird of Paradise is usually pest-free, but if it happens, treat pests as soon as they appear with weekly sprays of horticultural (Neem) oil and regular wipe-downs with a soft rag until they are eradicated.

📌 Wilting leaves or leaves curling in or sometimes leaves turning brown and crispy at leaf edges caused by under watered, high salts, or potassium deficiency. Water more often and monitor response.

📌 Torsion of leaves caused by mechanical damage. Possibly due to strong wind or bumping into the plant. Be mindful of the space around your plant.

📌 Yellowing, with bright yellow leaves. Usually the basal leaves will yellow first caused by root disease; overwatering; or pot-bound. Allow wet soil to dry out or try repotting.
