    Arie I have a white bird of paradise but it is only about 2 feet tall, how long will it be before it is flowering? I have read "5 years" but how big is a 5 year old BOP? Does it need a "trigger" to flower? do they flower more than once a year?

    I've only seen photos of the flowers, it will be so cool to see em in person on my plant (...someday..)! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It could take about 7 years to flower then it would had new ones about twice a year.
