Q.Bird-of-Paradise Blooms Won’t Open

Anonymous added on December 14, 2010 | Answered

One of my bird-of-paradise plants puts on blooms and they open to the point that I can see the orange petals, but then it stops. The orange petals stick out like a bump and stay there till the bloom fades. Any ideas?
