How to care for a bird of paradise plant

How to care for a bird of paradise plant which has turned yellow?


It is not a serious problem, it is just the result of a mixture of causes.

If you have a good, bright light, the yellow will disappear again after a while.

If you water a lot, it will become brown and dry.

In the case of the blue birds, you could try to use a blue or green plant such as Zantedeschia.

Above all, don't panic!


Here's some tips for other people who may come across this page looking for answers. It can be frustrating when you are sick of replacing your parrotbird's cage every week because every time you move it, it's falling apart. I did the above experiment myself years ago and I had the same problem.

These are the things that helped.

Train your parrotbird to keep the cage clean by throwing food at it. This makes it easier to clean off the cage and keep it clean. I first trained my parrotbird to be the clean bird, and then I started feeding him a mixture of food (meat, chicken broth, and boiled egg). You still have to clean off the cage every once in a while but this makes it easier.

If your bird grows up in a normal house, you will most likely have a bigger problem because most of them don't have their own cage. The bigger problem is flies. Make sure that there is a place on the bottom of the cage where the flies can't escape. Make sure you clean off the grate of the bottom of the cage and spray the whole cage a couple of times a week with an insecticide such as the liquid version of the red bug spray that's usually in the parks. The liquid insecticide kills the flies that gets into the cage. It is very important to clean the cage and not just wipe it with a cloth.

I had a green bird that kept getting dark patches on his head. His head was a little thinner than other birds and he looked very sad. I thought it was his diet. It turned out he had a skin disease. I took him to a vet and they told me to give him a special diet. If the parrotbird is eating a protein diet, check with your vet to be sure. I was told to use a fish-based diet.


If the bird has a high metabolism, it can have a hard time digesting both meat and fruits. I have a green parrot that has a hard time digesting meat, and has a bird that always wants to eat the fruits. They both like the chicken broth.

Because of that, I changed to just using the fruits, and I bought a few different types of fruits from the supermarket and I gave them to my parrot. I also bought a few different types of fruit seeds from different supermarkets and I sprinkled them on the floor. I watched them and they didn't seem to be interested in them.

At the beginning, I used the fruits and eggs as much as I could, and I didn't have to clean the cage much. Now, I sprinkle the fruits, and I clean the cage every day. After a while, the fruits started to fall off and it became hard to clean the cage. So I started feeding the bird the eggs mixed with the chicken broth. Instead of mixing the fruits and the eggs, I just mixed the fruits with the broth that the parrot is already liking and the results were similar.

Also, you have to clean the cage each time you move it. If you don't want to clean the cage each time, you can keep the cage in the bathroom and you don't need to clean the cage each time you move it.

This is one of my parrot's hens:

When I first got it, it was super full of brown hairs. As time passes, the brown hairs get removed and it has white feathers. Also, it has a black spot on one of the toes. It is mostly the same except for that black spot. I think it is a mask.

This is one of my parrot's hens a few years later:

If you have a high parrot, don't expect to see them very long. If you keep them in a house where there is a high light, they may turn yellow if they are not interested in eating enough. You could try a few different things to see if it gets better.
