The best time to sow bird of paradise seeds is in the spring. Fill a seed tray with a well-draining potting mix, and then press the seeds into the mix. Cover the tray with plastic wrap, and place it in a warm, sunny location. Keep the soil moist, but not wet, and the seeds should germinate within two weeks. Once the seedlings have emerged, transplant them into individual pots. Bird of paradise plants can be sensitive to transplanting, so it is best to wait until the seedlings are a few inches tall before transplanting them.
