Help me identify this plant. This guy asks for little water and care. He just sits there and slowly grows, season in and season out never requiring any sort of pampering from me. Who is this mysterious character?
@usgardentags Clivia was in the back of my mind originally. Both Clivia and Hippeastrums have strap like foliage, one is evergreen the other is mostly deciduous, but I hesitated in suggesting it as the foliage here is a little pointy at the tips whereas Clivias I have seen tend to have more rounded tips. @guadiforniagardener has also given us an important clue which is that it has bulbs. Clivia does not form bulbs, so at moment I’m still inclined to say Hippeastrum until more info given 👍🏼
@richard.spicer.7906 and @usgardentags I think we have a verdict. The flowers I’ve seen on #clivia photo uploads are definitely the same/very similar to the ones I remember blooming. (Now I need to check on the fact that I said there were bulbs. If clivias don’t grow from bulbs this may have caused a bit of confusion. I’ll upload a photo of the base.)Thanks!
