Description

This is a superb and new form of the beautiful "Bird of Paradise Plant". The flowers are golden yellow rather than orange, this desirable trait being perpetuated by hand-pollination of the parent plants which make fabulous container or outdoor plants in warmer countries. Very rare and valuable seed which is guaranteed to come true.

Sowing Advice

Abrade a small portion of each seed with sand paper or on a rough brick or similar, then soak seeds for 24 hours before sowing 2cm deep in a good loamy compost. Keep in a propagator or warm place, at between 20 and 25 degrees C, and do not exclude light. Germination can be erratic, usually taking between 2 to 12 months, sometimes longer, so do not discard the seed pots. Pot on small plants frequently in a coarse loose compost to achieve huge plants very quickly.
