I bought this beautiful plant three months ago and it used to be so healthy and tall.

I have kept it in an east facing window where I believe it receives a few hours of direct sun and a few hours of indirect sun each day. I have been watering it once or twice a week and mist it's leaves once a week too.

I have not used any fertilizer with it.

This poor thing is dying and I need help ASAP. Any advice appreciated.

The leaves look a bit limp, but bird of paradise can take a lot of abuse and the leaves are still green. There is life in it. Look at the young shoot in the 3rd plant on the right. Please key in curled leaves, split leaves and limp birds of paradise to see the possible cause. Some say it is caused by inadequate sun and water.

I cleaned mine up today , it will be Nov or early Dec before I move it inside.
It's been root bound in this old pot for a long time .
I see 2 blooms just starting to come up on the plant .
