It’s been amazing, it flowered in May and October and again at Christmas, it still has flowers now and one lot of lovely bright red seed pods. It’s got very big and will need splitting when these flowers finish!
Today I brought my clivia in for the winter. More seeds have developed this year than last - and- there’s a bud! (Can’t wait, love the flowers). Here’s last years seed - the slowest growing seed ever. Planted it around Christmas time when it looked nice and ripe. It didn’t germinate until June, I nearly threw it away. It’s about half an inch high now and still has only one leaf. It had better survive! #clivia #natallily
So this happened! Back last autumn after flowering my clivia had one seed and I decided to plant it. In the I took it to Spain for a while and I brought it back. I’ve been close to dumping it numerous times but when I looked at it today .... 10 months germinating! #germination #clivia #natallily #longwait #houseplantsjoho
What a shame Julie, they are so beautiful. Mine gets moved around through the year. In the hall in the winter, in the porch where it’s cooler when it’s flowering and now it’s outside in a sheltered spot. Seems to work, flowers beautifully twice a year. @juliesgarden
