Clivia miniata is the Kaffir Lily. Treat it as you would an Amaryllis and it should rebloom for you. After the plant has finished blooming, cut down the flowering stalk and allow the foliage to wither away on it's own. As the foliage begins to yellow, stop watering. After the bulb has rested sufficiently it will send up new sprouts. As soon as it does, water regularly. It will repeat the process of blooming and resting.
