Mystery plant

I’ve been slowly identifying the plants in my backyard, and I think i have this one figured out.  heliconia-psitticorum.jpg

I’m pretty sure its a heliconia psitticorum (bird-of-paradise lookalike), and I’m not sure exactly how to take care of it.  This picture was taken in early December when we were looking at the house and the plant was full of flowers for about two months; now there are few flowers and many of the leaves are yellow at the ends.  I’ll have to do some more research.
