I have a White Bird of Paradise that I bought (6 months old) that included three plants in a 10in pot. I kept in near my south-facing window these past 3 months and it has loved it despite it not being in growing season. I read that you're supposed to repot only in the spring, but I realized that my plant is growing rapidly and the 10in pot it was in was obviously becoming too small. So I did my research and bought a 14in pot and a bag of loose well-draining potting soil. I failed to find out that you're supposed to trim the old roots, after realizing that they were a quater inch thick at the bottom, almost circling the bottom of the old pot. Anyways, I repotted it because not only was it too small of a container, two of the plants were leaning about 10 more degrees than before! I couldn't believe it, I realized that whoever had put these Birds in the original plastic 10in pot had put two of them right next to each other, both within ONE INCH of the edge. This left them with very little expanding room, and this is what caused them to lean. So, I repotted it in the bigger pot with awesome growing medium, but it didn't really fix the leaning. I am currently using tape to help support them in the correct direction. What should I do? Should I put the two leaning birds in a seperate container? Or could I put something like a stone or wood on top of the soil wedged against the stems and the pot wall? Also, is it a problem that I didn't trim the roots? Will they rot as a result? HELP THIS THING IS MY BABY!
