PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Clivia miniata
Kaffir lily, Natal lily
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Houseplant, Tender
Flowering period
Height
Light preference Dappled sunlight
Soil preference Loam, moist but not waterlogged
Sowing time/depth All year, Surface (see notes)
A dynamic flowering houseplant native to South Africa, Clivia miniata is a rewarding plant to grow. Equally attractive when in its dormant stage, with broad, arching, spear-shaped leaves, but coming into its own when the flowers, which last for weeks, put on a show! Highly recommended.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow indoors on receipt. Do not completely cover the seeds, but press, with the eye to the side, into moist, well-drained compost so that half the seed remains exposed. Cover to exclude light until germination, which usually takes about 6 weeks. Aim to provide a temperature of 16-20C/60-70F. To help avoid damping off, dust or water in a fungicide and keep compost moist but not over-wet. Grow seedlings on in individual pots. Keep plants indoors in a bright location, but not in constant direct sunlight, feeding weekly and watering freely in summer. In the autumn, reduce watering and provide a cooler, shadier spot until late winter, then bring back into lighter, warmer surroundings. This helps encourage flowering.
