I have a Bird of Paradise which does not bloom planted on the southeast side of my home. What should I do to make it bloom? Thank you very much.

Bird of Paradise can take 4-5 years to mature enough to bloom. The roots of the plant need to be quite large before the plant has enough energy to produce flowers. If your plant is younger than that, you'll simply need to be patient. If it is older than 4-5 years, you can try feeding with a bloom booster type fertilizer (one that's high in the second and third numbers on the label). Lots of sunshine and adequate water will help your plant maintain good health, which will also prompt blooming. Best wishes with your Bird of Paradise!
