Cut the stem of the Bird Of Paradise under warm water at an angle.
Allow the flower to hydrate for a few hours.
To help the flower open you insert your finger into the flower at the stalk end and gently work the flower open out to the end.
Widen the opening enough to see the flowers.
Gently pull the top of the floret and pull it out.
Put the stem back in the water.

Use a floral preservative in the water to extent the life of the cut Bird Of Paradise.
