Bird of paradise as a houseplant requires sun, quite a lot of it, in order to thrive and bloom. Insufficient sunlight is the top reason that a bird of paradise inside doesn’t bloom. Place your plant in a site that gets at least six hours a day of sun a day, including hours of direct sunlight. However, if your living room gets very hot midday sun, indirect light during that period will do better. If your climate or house layout doesn’t provide this much sun, consider supplementing with artificial light.
During the spring and summer growing season, water your indoor bird of paradise plant enough to keep the soil consistently moist. Spraying with mist is appreciated in the warm months. Fertilize a bird of paradise indoors with a half-strength water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks during the growing period. In the dormant period, water less, about once a month, allowing the top 2 inches (5 cm.) to dry out completely between waterings. Do not fertilize at all but spray occasionally to keep the leaves humid.
