Hi,

Green Bird of Paradise with large Leaves

Bird of Paradise Plant

Your plant is called a Bird of Paradise. There are so many reasons why the leaves curl on this plant. The first thing I would suggest is to move your Bird of Paradise into better light, if that doesn’t help try giving your plant more water. If the leaves curl and also turn yellow or blotchy, you should check for spider mitesLearn how to identify and treat the plant pest called Spider Mites..
