CLIVIA: The story behind the beautiful clivia flower:
Clivia flowers are so beautiful, but very few people know of the lengthy process it takes to eventually get to the flower. I thought I would give new enthusiuasts a little peek into the beginnings of those beautiful flowers.
A process of about 5 years in all will get you from clivia seed to flowering size clivia. So patience is needed and a lot at that!
1. Pollination is done in flowering time.
2. Clivia seeds take 10 months to ripen
