Answer: That's a tough one! It sounds like you are doing everything right. Bird-of-paradise prefers a rich, loamy soils with good drainage, but is not that picky about growing in a sandy soil.
The bird-of-paradise will bloom in sunny or partially shaded locations. Plants grown in partial shade will be taller and have somewhat larger flowers. In full sun, plants are smaller and flowers are on shorter stems.
The plants need to be kept moist. Give them plenty of water during the growing season to produce a strong plant that can bloom well during fall to spring blooming season.
I guess you should just keep doing what you are doing. Hopefully, it will settle down and start blooming soon!
Thanks for the question!
