What can I do to get my Hawaiian Bird of Paradise to Bloom? Have had it for about 7 years. It has multiplied and seems to be very healthy.

Your Bird-of-Paradise (Strelitzia reginae) may be needing more sun or just more time. Sometimes as they multiply and get potbound, as yours has done, they begin to bloom a little better. If you are not fertilizing it with a complete liquid fertilizer high in phosphorus (the middle number) I would suggest starting to do so. Be patient...I know 7 years is a long time (too long), but once the plant starts to bloom it will be well worth it!
