Why to the leaves seem to be spilting on the bird of paradise plant


By Kayla1

The leaves ssem to be spliting on the bird of paradise plant which i have, if you could answer my question on why this is i would be very grateful.

On plant bird of paradise



Wind damage will split large leaves like banana and Strelitzia (bird of paradise). As long as it's only on the old leaves I wouldn't worry. My plant had one side shoot that was a bit distorted but the rest of the plant is fine. Cut off old leaves as new ones grow to replace them.
