The beauty clivia (Clivia) - one of the most spectacular bulbous and massive flowering, and the extraordinary beauty of the leaves. This plant is really exclusive, but it is suitable not only for experienced flower growers. And the main advantage of clivia is that it blooms the more beautifully the older it gets.
You cannot call it otherwise a magnificent indoor cleavage. A basal rosette of fan-shaped xiphoid leaves, an unusual rhizome with thickened formations that turn the culture into a kind of hybrid of a bulbous and rhizomatous plant, add unusualness to the clivia. But most of all, they do not like luxurious shiny foliage, but bell-shaped flowers collected in umbrellas of inflorescences, which look amazingly massive and elegant.
Elegant, noble, bright, clivia offers to bring festive accents to the interior. The color scheme in orange and red tones is distinguished by unique juicy shades.
The dormant period of clivia begins in October, requires placement in a cool place until the flower stalk is released, after which the plant is again transferred to normal conditions for flowering in spring.
Klivia is difficult to rank among the super-capricious plants. It grows well in any brightly diffused lighting with protection from direct sunlight; summer can also be spent in the fresh air. And the temperatures of the clivia during active growth will suit both indoor and hotter ones. The only difficulty in selecting conditions is a cool wintering, during which the plant must be kept at a temperature of 12 to 14 degrees.
For clivia, you need to pick up a light and loose soil, laying a high layer of drainage at the bottom of the containers. This plant does not like transplantation very much. And if it is carried out, then only if necessary, transferring the plant with an earthen clod. Clivia does not like spacious containers.
Caring for your clivia is fairly simple. The main thing is to maintain a stable soil moisture during the active phase of the growing season and accurate watering during the dormant stage. For this culture, only warm water is used. Top dressing is applied once every 2 weeks in spring and summer. For a dormant period, the clivia is transferred to coolness and shading, supporting the foliage with occasional watering.
