Clivia is spring flowers, change pot is spring flowers to change, now the weather is too hot, not suitable for changing pots, easy to change death. Even if it is not replaced, the pot period is relatively long, affecting autumn growth and thus affecting winter flowering.

Domesticated clivia I generally recommend spring flowers after the change of pots, mine is to change pots after flowers, will not wait until autumn to change. Mainly because the spring flowers will grow at the end of the slow pot, which will not affect the flower bud differentiation in July and August, and will not affect the winter flowering. If you wait until autumn to change, the root system is damaged and the water and nutrient supply is insufficient, it may cause the flower buds differentiated in summer to fail to grow into flowers and arrows. Before I met a flower friend, his clivia grows particularly well, habitually changing pots every autumn, but sometimes flowering sometimes not flowering. Later, the time for changing pots was changed to spring, and flowers could bloom every year, which was relatively stable. Of course, if your clivia is still young and not to flowering age, spring and autumn pot change are good options.

Clivia that has bloomed can be replaced once a year for the following reasons.

1. Clivia root system grows very fast, and the pot grows full in one year. When the root system cannot be extended, it grows slowly, the leaves are not oily, and the flowers do not bloom.

2. Clivia is fertile, and flowering consumes a lot of nutrients. Add base fertilizer every time you change pots, which can not only promote growth, but also save enough energy for next flowering. If the pot is not changed for a long time, even if there is fertilization at ordinary times, it may not bloom, or the flowers are few and small.

3. The roots of Clivia are fleshy roots. Many new roots will grow every year, but some roots will rot or be empty. These rotten roots and empty roots will affect the growth of Clivia. When changing pots, the rotten roots and empty roots can be cut off to make room for new roots to grow and stimulate the growth of new roots.

Therefore, it is necessary to change the pot of Clivia. As for how to change it, it is actually very simple. Take off the pot, shake off the pot soil, repair the roots, plant, slow the pot…a dragon is in place. If your clivia grows well and is disease-free and harmless, wait for autumn or spring to change it. Now it is good not to move, or continue to raise it.
