Fertilization

For best growth and flowering, bird-of-paradise requires fertilization. Slow-release fertilizers, such as sewage sludge and bloodmeal, or an inorganic complete fertilizer such as 12-4-8, can be used. Apply slow-release fertilizers at a rate of three to five pounds per 100 square feet of bed area and 12-4-8 at the rate of one pound per 100 square feet of bed area. Spread fertilizer around plants every three months during the growing season. Addition of minor elements is recommended.

At least once a year, preferably during summer, remove dead leaves and old flower stalks to prevent fungal organisms from building up on dead tissue.

Cold Hardiness

Although the bird-of-paradise is a tropical plant, it will tolerate temperatures as low as 24F for a short time. However, temperatures at freezing or below may damage developing flower buds and flowers. The bird-of-paradise can be grown in north Florida landscapes with protection, but there is always a chance of losing a season of blooms during a severe winter. You can ensure blooms every year in north Florida by growing plants in containers and moving them indoors when freezing temperatures are expected.
