Bird of Paradise repotting help.
I've read that Bird of Paradise like a somewhat root-bound pot situation. I have three separate plants in a 11 inch pot(two plants are about 2 1/2 foot tall and the third is about a foot tall). When I water my plant water runs out of the bottom really quickly and quite a bit of it, I lifted the pot and found a long thickish root stretching out from the botton draining hole. Time for a repot? Should I reduce the number of plants in the pot? Sort of a beginner here and not sure where to go. The plant looks healthy, except for new leaves that split as they are unfurling(while I have your attention..any ideas about that?)...I've posted a link to a few pictures of the plant and that root. I would really appreciate any ideas. Thank you.
