    I use liquid rose or tomato or pelargonium feed on all my houseplants, even the ones that don't flower and they seem to like it.  Haven't had a clivia for years but they flowered well on that diet.

    I think I may take mine up to grow at Glamis Walled Garden Glaasshouse as its so slow to grow.

    I have moved mine into my conservatory .

    What do you feed yours with?

     

     

  • Scotkat I dont know if you can get the in the old country but its a pellet fertilizer called smartcote and feeds up to 6 months and its for hanging baskets but I havent told my Clivia that and they like it.

    All my house plants get tomato fertilizer at a reduced strength.
