Bird of paradise flower
A beautiful species to grow on the terrace, with overwhelmingly elegant orange flowers that can appear after a few years. The plant grows well in a tub, and reaches a height of about 1,5 meters. The plant doesn’t like too much water or wet feet, prefers a tight pot and can be hibernated at a minimum temperature of 5 degC. The leaves of the bird of paradise flower resemble banana leaves, but are less fragile.
Remove the orange fluff from the seeds to prevent fungal growth. Soak the seeds for 24-48 hours in lukewarm water and sow the seeds in sowing mix. Keep the soil constantly moist, cover with plastic foil/glass, and let the seeds germinate at a temperature of 25 degC. Germination may take a few weeks or months.
