Bird Of Paradise

Genus: Strelitzia.

Species: Strelitzia reginae.

I got this baby FREE from Carolyn Wilson's Greenhouse. She divided it from her mother-plant in 1999 or 2000 and gave one to me. It has still never bloomed for me but I'm sure I have not been giving it enough fertalizer. I have increased that so I'm hoping to see one soon. PLEASE !!!
