Overall: I purchased a small young plant after seeing the truly amazing exotic flowers in floral decorations. I was determined to look after mine and make it flower, as I have read it can take many years before they produced a flower stem. I purchased the plant in 2007 and waited and waited. Finally in January 2012 it flowered, and the 5 years was definitely worth the wait. I would definitely recommend a Bird of Paradise, ours is like a member of the family now.
