What are you doing?

Where are they planted - sun exposure?
How are you watering them?

RE: Red bird of paradise

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.

RE: Red bird of paradise

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!

RE: Red bird of paradise

Dang. Mine are in shade and not growing much at all. I wonder if they could be safely moved?
