Clivia orange bulbs are a variety of flowering bulbs that are perfect for beginner gardeners because they are quite easy to grow. They will flower in the summer and require little maintenance. They are also a great option for those who don't have enough space to garden, as these plants can be kept in pots.
Frequently asked questions
How to make a clivia bloom?
Give Clivia miniata a cool, dry rest for 6-8 weeks to flower. If you live in a place with cold winters, you can place a potted clivia on your porch or patio for a month before the first frost, then bring it back inside and store it in a cool room until mid-winter. After this break, the rise of water with normal room temperature will lead to a spectacular show of blooms in March or April. Display your flowering clivia plant on a stand for all to admire.
What to do after blooming ends?
Cut off spent flower heads. Wait until the flower stalks begin to curl before cutting them off at the base of the plant. You can continue to display the plant -- its bright fan of leaves will be attractive year-round.
Origin: South Africa
Height: Up to 25 inches
Light: Bright light, no direct sun. No window available? Clivia miniata grows beautifully under fluorescent lights.
Water: Keep the soil evenly moist in spring and summer. In autumn and early winter, water sparingly to prevent the plant from completely drying out. Gradually increase watering in mid-winter. It's a good idea to use a pot with drainage holes to avoid a soggy potting mix.
