Clivia Plants
Q.

Indoor Plant Called a “Clivia”?

Zone Minnesota | Auntie Kathy added on August 5, 2011 | Answered

I have had two of these plants for almost 3 years. They are growing. I was told they would produce very fragrant flowers after the third year. The plant has approximately 10 leaves about 12" long and about 2" wide. I am not sure that the name of the plant is spelled right, but I am hoping you can help. Thank you.

Yes, they are called clivia.

Clivia need a rest period in order to bloom. They are alot like amaryllis in this regard. Have you provided a rest period? This article will help you with doing that:
