A Little Color on a Winter Day

The Bird of Paradise has blossomed again - the last time was in 2009. Don't know if it is just a cyclical thing or something I did - plant food, repotting, change of location.

OK, I jumped in too quickly with this post. I am noticing that the blossom is not yet fully opened - and there is another stalk with another blossom coming up. Will have to update later.

  4. You've got the magic touch. I've never known anyone who could get these to bloom at home in a pot.

  5. It seems to thrive under utter neglect. Forget to water it for weeks at a time, leave it outdoors almost till frost, stick it in a dark corner in the winter. Turn around one day and there's a blossom.
