Common name:
Bird of paradise flower

South Africa

Minimum temperature:
5 degrees Celcius

A beautiful species to grow on the terrace, with overwhelmingly elegant orange flowers that can appear after a few years. The plant grows well in a tub, and reaches a height of about 1,5 meters. The plant doesn’t like too much water or wet feet, prefers a tight pot and can be hibernated at a minimum temperature of 5 degC. The leaves of the bird of paradise flower resemble banana leaves, but are less fragile.

Sowing description:
Remove the orange fluff from the seeds to prevent fungal growth. Soak the seeds for 24-48 hours in lukewarm water and sow the seeds in sowing mix. Keep the soil constantly moist, cover with plastic foil/glass, and let the seeds germinate at a temperature of 25 degC. Germination may take a few weeks or months.

Sowing time:
Whole year

Level of difficulty:

Zeer goede kwaliteit! Alles gekiemt binnen 2 maanden. Tip: niet te warm proberen te kiemen. Ik had het beste resultaat bij 25 graden, terwijl bij 30+ graden kiem niet echt op gang kwam

Ik vraag me af hoe vers mijn zaden na drie maanden nog geen enkele zaailing!

Inmiddels 6 van de 10 zaden uitgekomen na ca 8 weken. De plantjes zien er goed uit. Erg leuk om te doen!

Alle zaden zijn uitgekomen binnen ongeveer 3 a 4 weken. Groeien goed en stevig. Tip: in een klein potje beginnen en daarna blijven overpotten anders krijgt hij meteen een hele grote pen wortel.
