- Clivia Rhizome After planting, water whenever the soil feels dry to the touch for the first growing season. Once established, clivia is drought-tolerant, but it needs water for the first growing season to get established.
- Clivia grows well in a part-shade area and can tolerate dry soil conditions. The ideal planting conditions are morning sun and afternoon shade with deep soil and good drainage.
- When planted from tubers, clivia flowers in the second year after planting.
- Clivia grows best in deep, well-draining soil. By adding compost at planting time, it both provides nutrients and improves drainage.
- You can divide clivia every two to three years to propagate and prevent overcrowding.
- Clivia blooms make long-lasting cut flowers and are ideal for indoor arrangements.
- Avoid planting clivia in a spot that gets full hot sun, as it will burn the leaves and damage the flowers.
