Japanese maple and bird of paradise are not at all related, so a problem with the bird of paradise won't necessarily transfer to your Japanese maple. Both are susceptible to root rot if the soil doesn't drain well so if that's your concern, be sure to amend the planting area with plenty of organic matter to facilitate good drainage before planting your maple. Best wishes with your new maple!
