Our clivia was received in a trade and grew indoors. The strappy, glossy deep-green foliage was welcome, but the real treat was when it bloomed. The only other time that happened with a plant we had indoors was with a confederate jasmine that was supposed to be asleep in the basement.

Our clivia sits with the rest of our plants near the front window that only gets direct sunlight in late afternoon. In winter, we've noticed the slow but steady emergence of new leaves. We just water when it's dry.
