Clivia in a pot
I live on Vancouver Island. I've had a Clivia growing indoors in a pot for many years and, except for the first 2 years, it has never since bloomed and the ends of the leaves go brown. I've been told the plant likes to be root bound, but I did split it up early this spring. I think it was too rootbound 'cause there was very little soil left in the pot. Both plants seem to be doing well, but I still have the brown leaf tip problem. Any suggestions?
