Clivias aren't widely grown as they were in Victorian times (19th and 20th-century gardeners in England and Belgium loved them), but they should be. Buy your plant in bloom, if possible; it can take two to five years for it to form its first flowers, which typically open in February or March. To get your clivia to rebloom, let it rest in a cool spot for a month, in temperatures that range from 40-60 degrees during the day, and no lower than 35 at night. Don’t water during this time. Then gradually resume watering, and start fertilizing as you slowly increase the temperature in the room. This will encourage buds to set. Once, only wealthy gardeners could afford clivias. Some are still expensive.
