Hi folks, new here!
I have what I believe is a white bird. I have had it for about 3 years now. It is a potted plant that gets moved from my back proch to my living room in winter. It has never flowered, but I read that potted birds are hard to flower.:(
I say I believe it is a white bird, because that is what I think was on the tag when I bought it. Well it seems to be heatlhy and growing like crazy. That is why I am now wondering if it is a white bird - and is a white bird the same a a GBOP?
The new growth shoots up from the center of the core of leaf shoots. The newer growth (last years) is now reaching 6 feet tall. This has had the effect of now causing the entire stems to lean and all of the leaf stems to twist.
So the question is, how do I tell if this is a white bird? and, should I prune out the tall growth to manage the plants?
Also, (am I over my question limit yet?) there are 3 plants in the large pot. I repotted it this past spring because it looked crowded in the old pot. I went from a 14" to a 22" pot. The plants are only inches apart. I thought about separating them when I re-potted, but being unknowledgeable and fearful of damaging this plant I have nurtured for 3 years, I left it alone. Should the plants be separated?
