Help! Bird of Paradise - Zone 7B

Hi All -

I brought the plant outdoors in May and all was well until a few weeks ago we had a couple weeks of scorching heat and then heavy rainfall. Leaves began to curl inward and I noticed some yellowing near the stalk. Now there are brown spots as well. Do I need more/less light & water? Keep it indoors year round? I didn't have these issues last summer (outdoors may-sept) or all winter & even grew a new branch! yay! I am a relatively inexperienced gardener and just don't know how to save it. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated...

Thanks!

TLC

Is it pot bound? Maybe roots have blocked the drain holes. Worth checking that out first.
