Q.Problem Repotting Bird of Paradise

kbels added on June 26, 2011 | Answered

A couple of the clumps of my bird of paradise broke off when we were trying to get it out of the old pot. Will they grow roots from the base, or is it a lost cause? I’m heartbroken because they had new leaves and blooms starting.

They likely will not grow roots. You can try, but you will have a better chance of rooting them if you remove the new blossoms.
