Clivia 'Fire Lily'
Slow growing, easy care, hard to find houseplant!
Don't miss out!
|Temperature:||Temperatures from cool to average room 60°F/15.5°C - 75°F/23.8°C are best suited. The resting period needed within the winter needs the temperature to be much cooler - at 40°F/4.5°C - 50°F/10°C.|
|Light:||Bright light is best (it can also be fine with less) and avoid direct sunlight.|
|Watering:||Keeping the soil fairly moist (to touch) within summer is advisable. Water sparingly at winter time and allow the soil to become quite dry, for about two months (this may encourage an early bloom).|
|Soil:||A good organic soil that drains well is ideal to use.|
|Re-Potting:||The Clivia would prefer you not to disturb it, so only re-pot when necessary and after it has flowered. Becoming pot bound is something this plant enjoys, and is suitable for it to grow well.|
|Humidity:||If the temperature is correct there will be no need for concern about the humidity. Sponging the leaves gently will help. Stuffy rooms with central heating should be avoided.|
|Propagation:||These are propagated through division (from the parent plant and roots attached) or seeds. Propagating should be done after flowering, with great care taken when dividing them. You can also grow from seed, although this is a slow process, developing only a few leaves per year.|
