The Q&A Archives: Clivia--plant

Question: I have a cliva plant and it never flowers,why?

Answer: Clivia can take a long time to bloom - it needs to produce 12-14 leaves before it will have the energy to bloom. (Most clivia produce only 4 leaves per year, so you can have a 3 year wait.) As long as your plant looks healthy and is growing, it will eventually bloom for you. Your patience will be rewarded!
