The Q&A Archives: Kaffir lily fertilizer

Question: I have been unable to find specific information on the best fertilizer to use on my kaffir lilies that I obtained through a nursery (they are your plants according to the label that came on them). Please suggest what mixture (N-P-K, micronutrients, extra ???, etc. ) would best serve them, thanks.

Answer: Clivia miniata, the Kaffir Lily, should be fertilized every two weeks with a half-strength dilution of liquid 20-20-20. After flowering your plant will need a rest; stop fertilizing in mid-September and don't resume feeding until the following spring.

Enjoy your Kaffir Lily!
