I bought a (white) Bird of Paradise 3 years ago at a retail store. It is over 6 feet tall and looks very healthy, but it has never bloomed. Is there anything I can do? It stays in the house in the winter and outside for about 6 months a year. Anything you tell me would be greatly appreciated. I live in Louisville, Ky. We have very humid summers.

These plants are notorious for being tempermental when it comes to flowering. They will readily flower for months and then just stop, with no scientific reason for this behavior.
