Hi,

I'm new to the forum and just found you from googling! everyone seems to be so helpful Smiling

Could someone help me out on my BOP? I first purchased my BOP May 2019 (see photo below).

My home faces south and I've been keeping it close to the window in the corner- see photo below

I have re-potted it in March 2020. I've definitely have new growth since last year and a new large leaf just appeared this month!

Sorry, now onto my question, I just noticed today while misting that I have this light green and brown spots on my one leaf. I looked around and did not find any spider mites as I read someone in this forum had them on their plant. (back story, I had a small rubber plant that had spider mites but I have now trashed it and it was never near my BOP). I don't know if it's too close to the window as I face south, or if i'm not misting it enough. I love this plant and hoping someone can help me out!

Hi,

Can someone help me? My birds of paradise was doing so well and now the lower leaves are turning yellow. I even have new growth.
The photo was taken couple days ago and now today my leaves are even more yellow. What did I do?? And what do I do to fix it? Cut the leaves?
