I have inherited this poorly looking clivia from my grandmother who has unfortunately been moved to a care facility. It is obviously in need of some serious tlc but i dont know where to start as i have never grown them. Any help from you clivia experts out there would be much appreciated xx #clivia #sickplant

Kristine, leaves are damaged due to possible Lily Caterpillar. Remove all the eaten leaves as they are susceptible to fungus attack. See underneath leaves near to base of plant early morning and remove any caterpillars with a small thick stick #advice

Repotting can be done to bigger size pot. Plant has overgrown its Pot 😊

Can they be broken up separated into different pots by any chance. And also when i took a leaf off just then there was a latex type fluid. I am assuming this is normal, and on inspection quite the majority of leaves will need to go, how wise is that while plant is flowering. Sorry for all the questions xx and thankyou

They can be split, go for it into 3 at least, when you water them after splitting , get , soluable aspirin , use a quarter of the tab in one big watering can ... pour and watch them bounce back . 😜
