Helpful blooming tip for a more mature BOP: BOP plants require fours hours of full sun (or bright light indoors) in order to bloom sufficiently. They should also be kept evenly moist throughout summer but need to dry out between watering. Container grown plants will bloom more often if kept slightly pot bound. Repotting too often/splitting can inhibit the flowering of bird of paradise blooms for up to two years. It’s also helpful to fertilize these plants during their active growth at least every couple of weeks with a general purpose water-soluble fertilizer or a granular every 1-2 months.
