I have 6 Clivia plants 4 of them are pups.
Last year three Bloomed and I saved the seeds. I now have 10 seedlings that are about 3 inches tall. They don't seemed to growing very fast or sturdy. What can I do to incourage their growth and when do you think they will bloom. Like I said they are pretty small.

Clivias are naturally slow growing from seeds but as long as you keep them warm and the soil on the moist side, they will eventually grow for you. They are usually kept in a container for the first year and then planted out in the garden. They won't bloom until after they have been planted outdoors. Just be patient with your clivia and they will eventually reward you with flowers. Enjoy!
