Question: How you feed Bird of Paradise through the year?

Answer: If your plant is young, feed every 4 weeks during the growing season (spring through summer) with a 5-10-10 fertilizer. Once the plant is established, don't feed at all unless the foliage begins to look pale. (If you feed too often, your plant will respond by developing lots of foliage, at the expense of flowering.)
