Description Clivia Photo Gallery
Soil: Well drained soil that contain some peat moss is what I use for mine.
Clivia is believed to be one of the most cherished houseplant. It always gives quite show in spring, displaying a group of exquisite flowers in various shades of red, orange, and yellow. The hybrid Clivia is hardier and offers more interesting colors.
The two clivia I have are clivia minita. They are hybrids and one of them is a bit orange and another one is more yellowish. Even without flowers, the two clivias are beautiful to look at with their deep green color leaves in nice peacock-tail like stands. At the same time I got them, I also purchased two heavy ceramic pots to put them in there. They are top heavy and would have been easily overturned if I had left them in small pots.
Small red fruits form after the clivias flower withered. Let the fruits mature on top of the stem. Once they became a bit hard, take them down and put them in moist soil. The new plant often grows slowly and it will take a few years before it can flower.
