  1. Hi Joan

    Thanks for visiting Plantbook.

    Clivia species are normally very tolerant of dry conditions, so you could perhaps be over-watering. Also, being in a pot, their supply of nutrients is limited. And, after 6 years, they may require re-potting with a new growing medium and the addition of a balanced organic fertiliser.

    Flourish!

  2. I live in the Free State in Bloemfontein South Africa. I have three pots on the southern side of our house. They flowered briefly for the first time this year. I have had them about ten years. We re-potted them six years ago after moving to a new house. The leaves are all turning brown on the tips. It has been extremely hot this year so have been watering daily. Is this too often? I would really appreciate your advice please.
