bird of paradise in a small pot

Zone Wisconsin | Anonymous added on November 5, 2016 | Answered

I had a bird of paradise in a small pot but it was being root bounded by the small pot. So I re-potted it and completely cut off all of the leaves. Will it grow back or should I just toss it?

Your plant may have died from root rot. Bird Of Paradise prefer to be root bound and many people mistakenly repot them when they slow down growth for their dormant period.
Allow the soil to dry and wait and see.
