Bird of Paradise Disease?


Anonymous added on August 9, 2016 | Answered

The flower shows black blotches all over but only starts to appear as the flower opens. A dissected flower shows no sign of disease prior to opening.

This likely is a fungus issue.
Treat the plant with Neem Oil and do so weekly as a preventative weekly through the growing season.
