Hey I'm heather I'm a total plant nerd and have a zest for any plant knowledge my tiny apartment is a plantastrophe I can't get enough.
Lovely leaf can't wait to see the one thats about to unfurl hope it's bigger than this. This plant has grown very slow for me #birdofparadise
New leaf. Long time coming #birdofparadise
She's growing a baby!! Omg #birdofparadise
What's this I see......
New leaf wants to open but just won't... #birdofparadise
My #birdofparadise just doesn't want to grow big. I don't get it. I want it to get tall! Even out side in the summer maybe it needs a bigger pot? Idk. Ideas?
I just read that a plant approximately 3-4' will be happy in a 10" pot. It's hard to tell in the picture, but is the pot too big? Being rootbound promotes blooms.
I think the pot is about that size. I'll double check tomorrow. I may pull it out and check the roots too. I highly doubt it would ever bloom where I live. I don't think they do here. @KariSamuel
Never hurts to investigate a little bit! 🔎
Mine is 4 years old now growing outside year round, haven’t seen a bloom yet. 🌞
Got a new leaf and I really hope it gets more and starts getting bigger. It's still so small and I had it for a long time :( #birdofparadise
The new leaf has opened! It looks so fake #giantwhitebirdofparadise #birdofparadise #newleaf #unfurled
Tbh @apomwo I would consider getting rid of my whole plant
@heatherdirtyhands how big is it?
When I get home I'll take a picture of it k but it has like 5 leaves one on the way and is a couple feet tall approx. Its not huge huge @apomwo
U can scroll back and see some pics @apomwo
@heatherdirtyhands it's pretty 😍 idk what shipping would be on a plant like that. I sent a small box of starts to a woman in MO and it was like $15 shipping.
Dam that's crazy. I didn't know it was that much @apomwo
@heatherdirtyhands it went to MO so PA to OH won't be near as much
Its happening! #unfurl #birdofparadise
Cant wait to finally see a new leaf. Hope its not mishapen and also hope it gets way bigger this summer. Lets hope #birdofparadise #giantwhitebirdofparadise #newleaf
The new leaf is so skinny. :( why? There's a new one popping up hopefully its more full #birdofparadise #whitebirdofparadise
My bird of paradise seem to be struggling too. I think it's lack of light but it's too late to put it outside
Funny thing mine is outside. Who knows. Its only grown one leaf like all summer @mardel
This poor thing was super dry and when I took it to water it I was so suprised. #newleaf #unfolding #unfurling #giantwhitebirdofparadise #foliagefriday
So happy to see a #newleaf open #birdofparadise #giantwhitebirdofparadise
Oooo! Promise you’ll post when this blooms!
Promise I will! I cant wait but honestly here in Pittsburgh I'm not sure it ever will @fearlessthereforepowerful
I gave my other one to my friend and its so weird it got a new leaf and it was SUPER small and really distorted. Im so glad mine didnt do that. @fearlessthereforepowerful
Well, I’ll still hope it does. It’s so cool!
New leaf looking lovely.... #birdofparadise #newleaf
New leaf thankfully it was down to 2 leaves hopefully it now starts to acclimate to being back outside #giantwhitebirdofparadise #newleaf
It's #unfurling yay! #birdofparadise #giantwhitebirdofparadise
Cant wait for this #newleaf to unfurl! I love my #birdofparadise they are so easy to take care of I hardly have to water... And honestly they are tolerating the dark winter really well.
#birdofparadise-white #newleaf love seeing these....hope one day mine flowers!
