Stem of bird of paradise broke off

8 months ago


A part of the massive bird of paradise plant broke off outside during a storm.

After 2 days I took it on and planted it in a pot.

Now I read you are supposed to cut the stem off with a clear cut to avoid mould and bacteria.

Should I take it out of the pot and cut it? Put something on the cut? Or leave it and hope for the best?

Will it grow roots?

I hope it will survive!! Help!
