Hello everybody,
I have a beautiful strelitzia which for the first time in many years started producing flowers again. I saw three stems coming out. One had a magnificent flower but the other two stems began to become brownish and the flowers did not open. Can anyone tell me what happened?
In winter the plant was standing cool with not much water. When the flowers appeared I put the plant in a warmer environment and started giving more water (the pot was never dry). Maybe this method is not correct.
Thank you for your reply

that is a drought tolerant plant, you probably drowned the flowers

mine is in a pot that i water twice a month

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!
