How much water does a Bird of Paradise need?


It is time to water when the top inch of the potting mixture goes to dry check with your handy finger(s). Use tepid water moistening the entire potting mixture thoroughly throughout. Water early in the day not at night. In the slow growth period of fall and winter, give only enough water to keep the plant from drying out completely, so less frequency of watering.
