clivia/ kaffir lilly

shirley8shirley8 Posts: 1

I just acquired a clivia that has already bloomed for this season.  It has 5 shoots/bulbs/rhizomes and is planted in an 8 inch gallon plastic pot.  I had visions of putting it into a new carefully chosen ceramic pot, but am told the roots are very sensitive and don't like to be "messed with."  So, should I even try to repot it or divide it, or should I just let it be for at least another growing season?

    Repot and split when the roots fill the pot.  make sure each section has a" nose " or growing point.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    And keep it out of the sun, the leaves scorch easily.



    Mine has been in the same large pot for years; I'm told they like to be confined.
