I planted four red birds of paradise two years ago and they have not grown an inch. What am i doing wrong?
What are you doing?
Where are they planted - sun exposure?
How are you watering them?
Sun exposure is important. When provided with proper conditions, these bad boys have the potential to reach full size in a single season -- remarkable really.
Hiya! I agree with the others, full, amazingly hot, full full sun keeps them happy and growing. Water when fairly dry to keep them happy, but really it's heat and sun that makes them take off. What conditions are yours getting? Happy gardening!
Dang. Mine are in shade and not growing much at all. I wonder if they could be safely moved?
