I bought a Clivia plant in late winter. It was just ending its bloom,
but I bought it anyway, because it will bloom again next year.
I put it outside on the deck. North light, but not in direct hot sunlight.
On June 27th, I noticed this!
It was going to bloom again!
(With a bite chewed out of it already.)
See the chewing marks all around that flower?
We left for holidays when it looked like this, so I was worried I might miss the show.
But the blooms lasted for a few weeks.
Just this week they are starting to drop.
Anyway, as I wasn’t expecting any blooms for a long while, it was a blooming bonus!
