Thank you Paul, I think it is, I was just suprised today with the leaves today. I never saw them to curl on the sun and later while the sun is gone to get into normal position. but only new ones- like 6 leaves. I tried to google something but nothing. I will keep watching, thanks

I took this picture few days ago, you can see that she don’t have very pointy leaves as she ahould be, this is because they tried to reach the window in old flat. Now she is right by the west facing window and already deceloping 3 new leaves so hopefully more light and sun will improve the overall look.

To Philipha: this plant is over 8 years old and it flowered past two years so I have to do something right. I only changed the flat. Till now she had a lot of indirect light, now she have full sun for few hours. I personaly think it must be the sun as the leaves are fully open now again, I just hoped someone will be able to tell me more here...
Paul: sorry my fault, I meant WEST facing window :)) I woundn‘t have a sun whole day till night with east facing window, my mistake sorry.

its evening now and the leaves are open again... Will the palnt adapt to the sun or is this sign of not having enough water?

Hi, yes UK, Brighton. The window is east facing (the plant get sun from around 14:00 till evevning and it’s in the flat). I noticed that only newish leaves are curling, the establish not. Till now I had the plant in dofferent flat without sun (but enough light) and never had this issue. thanks

hi guys, I have my bird of paradise for over 4 years now. She never get any direct sun however I moved recently I know that this plant required lot of sun. So she is sitting behind the window now. I noticed that after the day with the sun shine the leave will curle inside. Why she does it? She is doing this only when there is a direct sun, however the leavea are nice and open when there is no sun.
is this because she is not use to direct sun and will improve or is there something else involved? She is doing this only after a sun bath.
