If a list of show-stopping houseplants exists, then the Bird of Paradise plant would most definitely make that list. In the wild, the BOP has evolved to naturally tear along its lateral veins to let strong winds pass. This lessens the risk of its stems snapping in half during inclement weather. Grown indoors, the BOP can grow up to an impressive size. With the right care and maintenance, the BOP can be a stunner of a houseplant in any space it's placed.
