Clivia Miniata

Clivia Miniata - also known as Kaffir Lily - is mainly grown from tuberous roots as a houseplant - it will not tolerate any frost.  The thick stem bears a cluster of 10-20 bright orange funnel-shaped flowers at its tip.  It likes dry air, dry soil and bright light with no direct sun.  Rest it in winter in an unheated room to force it into dormancy.  It needs to be divided every few years.

Clivia are shipped bare-root slips (fans) from blooming size plants. They can bloom the first year; however we remove the flower because they will try to bloom in storage.  They will most likely take a growing season to re-establish before they start blooming again.

Browning on any leaves present is normal since we stop watering and lower the temperature to force dormancy during winter. They should take right off again when planted.
