We purchased two birds of paradise a few weeks ago. We have repotted them, and water them every day, sometimes twice a day based on the leaves curling. Yet they continue to curl. Recently it has been very hot, so that's why we think they need so much water. One seems to be doing a bit better growing, then another. I will include some pics.
- When we originally got them, it was cool at night so we brought them inside, watered them less and they curled less for a few days... Once the heat came back we brought them back outside.
- We live in southern Ontario, weather has been hot this past week... 80-90s
- They get noon-6pm direct sunlight
- they were repotted in large pots with basic topsoil as that's all we had at the time. Since then we have added miracle grow food to feed them. They do not have drainage holes in the bottom.
Thanks for any help/suggestions.
