Package list: Strelitzia Reginae 5 PCS Seeds
Bird of Paradise flower seeds are slow to germinate, taking up to 8 or more weeks to germinate, and it will take 4 - 7 years for the plant to start blooming. When planting, soak the hard Strelitzia Reginae flower seeds for 24 - 48 hours in lukewarm water, then nick them with a knife or small file, before planting. Scarified seeds will germinate in two to three months.
Another way to decrease germination time is to put un-scarified seeds in a plastic bag and place them in a refrigerator at 4°C (40°F) for two weeks.
Seeds should be planted 1 inch (2.5 cm.) deep in moistened, high-quality potting mix. Locate newly planted seeds somewhere hot, at least 85 F. (29 C.), with indirect light. Cover the pot with plastic to retain humidity and keep the soil moist.
The germination of bird of paradise seeds is slow, so be patient. It can take anywhere from one month to a year to see a sprout. It can also take the new plant up to 10 years to flower. Timing is dependent on soil temperature and freshness.
NOTE: If you need to re-pot a plant it might take a couple of years or more for the plant to start blooming again.

I usually have pretty good luck with growing plants, but still haven’t had any of the sprout. That being said, it’s only been about 6 weeks, and the package said it can take several months. We’ll see.
I followed the instructions. I planted all of the seeds, two of it sprouts and more to come.
5 seeds were included. 2 of the 5 germinated, although all were handled & cared for per instructions. 2 stars for 2 germinated.
I am excited to receive these. Now, if I can just get them to grow. If they do, I will be thrilled!
It may take a year to enjoy, but I will be willing to wait.
