Bird Of Paradise Plants

Bird of Paradise

Anonymous added on June 29, 2011 | Answered

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.
