Bird Of Paradise Plants

Red Mexican Bird of Paradise Bush

Patrick added on July 28, 2013 | Answered

My Bird of Paradise was doing very well. Suddenly the blooms stopped appearing and the ones that were blooming were beginning to wither. I checked it out and found a white sticky substance on the blooms themselves and on the stalks. What is it and how do I correct it?

Thank You
