The Q&A Archives: Bird of paradise

Question: When does the bird of paradise bloom? I have bought potted plants over the years, but none has ever bloomed. A neighbors is blooming now.What need to be done?

Answer: I've found that Bird of Paradise takes 3-4 years to establish before they will bloom. Patience, patience, patience is all it takes to encourage your plants to bloom. Full sunshine and adequate water but no fertilizer will help them mature enough to flower. And when they do, it's worth the wait!
