Q.Bird Of Paradise Bulb?

Zone Edinburgh | liammachin900123 added on October 20, 2020 | Answered

I have a strelitzia reginae – bird of paradise – growing with 4 pairs of leaves and a closed shoot up the middle. The pot has holes in the bottom. There are no signs of roots pushing through or over the pot. However, there seems to be a bulb of sorts that is poking through one of the pot holes. I cannot find anything about this – any ideas?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to see the problem in question.

Many times when I get this description it turns out to be a mushroom!

What I can do in the meantime is point you toward an article that will help you with the care of the plant:
