Bird of Paradise Question

Anonymous added on April 20, 2011 | Answered

I have a bird of paradise that has been growing for almost 4 years now. It is super healthy and we get 2-3 new leaves a year, and I live in Washington! It hasn't bloomed yet, and I am wondering if I should repot it now. It is in a pot with a drainage hole in the bottom and a root has been growing out of the bottom for almost a year now. I know that this plant likes to be root bound, but when should I graduate it to a new pot? And is there anything special that I need to know to make sure the transplant doesn't harm my plant?
