|I have a bird of paradise inside my screened courtyard - plant is beginning to touch screen at top - how do I cut the plant a couple of feet from the top so it will not go through the screen.|
I assume you are talking about GIANT BIRD OF PARADISE (Strelitzia nicolai). There is not a way to get the trunk to be shorter. If you cut out a long trunk the plant will produce small side plant that will take some time before they too grow too large.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
