bird of paradise plant
I have 3 bird of paradise plants I just got. One was already blooming when I got it. My question is when it's done blooming, what do I do with the stalk? Do I cut it back or just let it be? They are all doing very good. I just want to know what to do with the dried out part of the bloom when it's dead. Do I cut the whole stalk back or just the top or leave it alone?

Cut the entire stalk unless there is another flower developing from the same stalk.
