Answer: Hello Jamie,

Have you considered soil pH? Clivias do prefer a soil pH of 5.5 to 6.5, with higher pH levels inhibiting the availability of some nutrients.

To lower soil pH, try Yates Soil Acidifier, Liquid Sulfur. You can see a picture of the product using the below link.
To raise soil pH, try Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite. More information is available here:
