    bird of paradise sowing help

    hey everyone i have bought bird of paradise seeds i went online to read some sowing tips.

    options:
    1. Pull off orange tuff and then put in water for 2 days
    2. Pull off orange tuff and put into soil and keep very moist

    so this leads me to my question.

    the first option i do not like personally lol so does anyone know if i may use the second option because this sounds better and easier to me lol any one have any idea ?

    no clue but do know you got a long time before seeing flowers.....they dont tend to bloom till they are rootbound in a 10 inch or bigger pot......

    haha yea i know they take a long times a few years i hope i can find out if i can use option 2 because the quicker the better lol soon when it gets bigger i will plant outdoors maybe but for now when i find out i will grow inside

    It is not the time it takes ^^ it is the beauty within

    why not try both? I tried just planting them in a pot without any treatment and nothing grew.
