My cousin gave me a clivia plant when she divided hers this fall. This morning I noticed that it is going to bloom! The bloom is barely visible in the middle of the leaves. Approximately how long does it take from this stage until the full stalk appears and the blooms open? We will be away from home approximately 3 weeks and don't want to miss this. We can take it with us as we are traveling from one home to another, but if it takes sometime to come into full bloom, I had rather not risk damaging the plant by carting it around.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

I have successfully killed the one Clivia I have owned so I will wait for someone who knows to speak up.

I have decided to take it with us. I have missed so many blooms on plants, I can't even count them. I have also killed various plants, so at least I will have the satisfaction of having seen it bloom once....maybe Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Hallo

Perhaps I can help you with advice. I have lots of Clivia's here in the Netherlands.
When you see the bloom( bud) in the middle of the plant, very small, it cost certainly two till three weeks. It depends which temp. you give the plant. You must also watering now the Clivia, otherwise the bud will not grow and is than flowering between the leaves.
Do you understand me? If you have questions, do not hestitate me to ask

success

Thanks so much Ton. I decided to bring the Clivia back to AR with me as we will be here about three weeks. I will begin watering it now, and hope to see a beautiful bloom in a few weeks.
