How to Open a Birds of Paradise Flower

Updated: Feb 7, 2023

Have you ever stumbled upon a Birds of Paradise flower and wished you could see it in all its glory? These exotic blooms are known for their unique and mesmerizing way of opening, and with a little bit of patience and know-how, you can manually open one for yourself. In this post, we'll show you how to manually open a Birds of Paradise flower and experience its beauty up close.

Step 1: Gather your materials You will need a pair of gloves, a sharp pair of scissors, and a Birds of Paradise flower that is just starting to open. Make sure to handle the flower carefully, as the petals are delicate and can easily be damaged.

Step 2: Put on your gloves Birds of Paradise flowers contain a sticky substance that can be difficult to wash off, so it's important to wear gloves to protect your hands.

Step 3: Cut the stem Using your scissors, carefully cut the stem of the flower just below the base of the petals. The stem will act as a lever, allowing you to gently pry open the petals.

Step 4: Apply pressure Grasp the stem with one hand and gently apply pressure to the base of the petals with the other. This will help to separate the petals and reveal the inner beauty of the flower.

Step 5: Admire the view As you continue to apply pressure, the petals will slowly start to separate and reveal the orange stamens in the center. The unique design of the Birds of Paradise flower is truly something to admire, so take your time and enjoy the view.

Step 6: Share the experience Birds of Paradise flowers are a rare and beautiful sight, so why not share your newfound knowledge with others? Take a photo or video and share it on social media, or simply tell your friends and family about your exciting discovery.

Manually opening a Birds of Paradise flower is a fun and rewarding experience that will give you a unique and up-close look at one of nature's most beautiful creations. Just remember to handle the flower with care and enjoy the journey!
