if ever there was a bomb proof plant this is it and such lovely flowers in such an array of colours and shapes truly under appreciated - there are even scented varieties

    Yes, we have 2 - one an offshoot of the other. Both now flower sometimes twice in a year. I rescued the original plant from a black bin where the previous owner had thrown it once it had flowered. Supermarket purchase I think. The plant has been living with us for many years now and seems to thrive on benign neglect.

    I have gifted numerous to friends and family and they really like them and the fact they get such lovely flowers with so little effort

    I have two giant pots of the yellow flowered version, just about to flower - I will post picture if I can work out how. one pot is making ,many offsets - free to anyone who has the muscle to help repot when they are ready in the autumn. At about 3ft across, it's getting difficult to find somewhere to over-winter them both

    I am a clivia lover and use to grow them in South Africa. If you have an affshoot to spare I will appreciate it very much. If not to far I can help to seperate them.
    I have two very small clivia seedlings on offer. (Two leaves)

    I do have numerous off sets of a plant I am waiting to be confirmed under the name Conwy jackpot it is a very strange clivia. here is the description I have provided to the registry (its only produced 2 variegated leafs) 'A stable multi petal (8 petals) with large well rounded flowers. Flowers are very late to develop colour appearing green for some time maturing to orange some time with rusty. Young flowers have a distinct green centre rimmed very light cream. as the flower matures the cream get whiter and larger and the green dissipates. has the odd variegated leaf but is mostly not variegated and displays prominent sepals which are bright green with flashes of the same burnt orange. not a large number of flowers per umbel but this is a young plant with room to improve. No scent and offsets freely' I am happy to swap for a seedling as I am interested in in genetic variety at the moment. I have all sorts of young plants in my collection so will have a fair few to choose from in the next few years.

    below are some pictures there are several young flowers developing under the first - this one flower is still going now with the second about to open well over a month after this picture was taken. pictures don't do the colours justice really but I will be getting a colour chart to assist with this

    It is a lovely Clivia, if possible I would like an offshoot. I only have the regular orange if you're interested.. (as in the picture)
