I've been lazy and didn't even cut off the old bloom stalk.......so when it yellowed and fell I just saw there was another stalk behind it!

steven, I have heard they have to be several years old to bloom. Is this true? I have a fairly small variegated clivia. It doesn't seem to be getting any bigger tho. It has gotten a new leaf since I got it, but it is the same size as the other. Any advice?

How much light is your getting Jeanette? Mine gets bright light and sits back (maybe 4 feet) and off to the side of a south window. They also need a cool dry (almost no watering) period in the winter with regular watering and fertilizing spring/summer. I also mist mine every morning even though you are not supposed too Whistling

I got my plant last November from a church bizarre. I didn't know what it was, however it seemed to need a home and I liked it so brought it home. For about the past 3 to 5 weeks it has been producing new growth. How much water is not enough versus too much, and what else should I do to keep this plant; actually there are two in this very huge pot; Happy and healthy. I didn't know about not spraying them. I've been spraying mine every day and sometimes twice a day since I brought it home.
