Q.white bird of paradise

Zone 32092 | adenbygc added on June 27, 2017 | Answered

hi ! i planted 3 fairly large younger ( about 15 gallon i believe ) white birds of paradise early spring – i am in zone 9b . one had 3 stalks of growth and the other two had 2 stalks growing … iv had a problem with one of the smaller two but really only one looks pretty rough randomly . iv had to prune it due to the leaves turning dark brown/yellow-ish … i fertilized all threee & the main one im having a problem with also seemed to be unhappy with the fertilizer as well . iv been told to prune discolored problem leaves to the ground so that the plant has a better chance to work on new growth . but my main question is – if i do that will i kill the plant ? will they ( all of them ) be expected to eventually grow new stalks and survive – i have a 1/2 acre and hav spaced them very well i believe . im not one to give up on plants so easily & i love these things potential – i just feel like i need some pro tips . iv been googleing like crazy
