The Q&A Archives: Bird of Paradise.

Question: I bought 2 White Bird of Paridise plants and was wondering if i planted them on the ground inside their pots if they would stay on the smaller side?

Answer: Keeping the roots confined will retard the growth of your plant but eventually you'll need to repot into a larger pot or the roots will break the pot (this includes plastic, terra cotta and seamed metal pots). If you have only a small space, there are dwarf varieties available. Perhaps you can exchange your full sized plants?
