My neighbor has a beautiful garden. It's amazing
how many flowers you can get into a small space.
(we only have a few feet to play with around the building.)
This was snapped as I was taking the hound for a walk the other day.
My best friend was just wondering when Bird of Paradise bloom.
I guess this answers that question. :-D
Beautiful plant, I just got a clipping from my neighbor, Can you tell me do I put it in water Or plant it in dirt.
Thank You & God Bless,

RE: Bird of Paradise
Did you get part of the rhyzome (The big knobby root in the ground)? If so, I would dust any broken surface with rooting hormone to keep fungus out and promote root growth and put it in fresh soil. If you are not in a warm weather location, I would put it in a clean pot. They apparently like to be a little root bound to bloom and they can take a few years to get to the point where they bloom.
If you only got part of the plant, and not the rhyzome, it will probably last longest in water. But I doubt you'll be able to get it to root.
