Hi Debbra,

Clivia flower late winter/early spring. To ensure that your plants flower next year you need to give them the necessary nutrients they need to produce strong growth and flower buds. Regular small applications of fertiliser will improve flower production. We would suggest either Aquasol Soluble Plant Food Soluble fertiliser or Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit be applied on a 2 weekly basis. Both of these products are high in potassium which promote flowering as well other nutrients which encourage health plant development. Hopefully next winter/spring your clivea plants will give you lots of stunning yellow flowers.
