It is a perennial herb with a flowering period of 30~50 days, mainly in winter and spring. It also blooms around New Year's Day to Spring Festival. It is a semi-shade plant. It likes cool and avoids high temperature. The optimum temperature for growth is 15~25 degrees Celsius, and growth stops below 5 degrees Celsius. Like hypertrophy, good drainage of soil and wet soil, avoid dry environment. Clivia has a high ornamental value, China often potted in greenhouses for viewing. Ramite or seed propagation. The same effect there are hanging smile Clivia, greenhouse cultivation around, a variety of colors.
Clivia growth habits
Clivia is native to the tropical regions of southern Africa and grows under trees, so it is afraid of heat and cold, likes semi-cloudy and humid environment, fears strong direct sunlight, and the best temperature for growth is between 18 and 28 degrees Celsius, below 10 degrees Celsius, and above 30 degrees Celsius. Growth is inhibited. Clivia likes ventilated environment, like deep fertile loose soil, suitable for growth in loose fertile slightly acidic organic soil. Clivia is a famous greenhouse flower, suitable for indoor culture.
Roots and leaves have a certain correlation, when new roots and leaves grow, new leaves will also grow out, roots will be eliminated (rotten or dried by water, etc.), as long as the leaves do not wilt, pay attention to maintaining soil moisture during maintenance, remember not to water too much, dry too frequently, then the roots will grow new roots, so that plants can survive (maintenance properly, new roots can be found in about 10 days). Damage to the leaves will also affect the roots.
Clivia normally flowers-times a year, flowering-generally in + N leaves above. If the indoor cultivation temperature is right, it can bloom around the Spring Festival. Clivia is known as the flower of wealth, after growing up, generally-year-second flower, -two flowers a year is very rare, as for three flowers are rare. in
Clivia clip arrow what are the reasons.
1, the temperature is too low: Clivia sprout temperature is about 20 degrees Celsius, if the temperature is lower than 15 degrees Celsius for a long time, its flower bud is difficult to grow.
2. Insufficient nutrition: Clivia has a large demand for phosphorus and potassium when it is pregnant and flowering. If it is lacking, it will make Clivia shoot insufficient, resulting in arrow clamping phenomenon.
3, pot soil hypoxia: Clivia bud pregnancy root oxygen demand is large, if the pot soil is too fine or long-term in the state of greater humidity, it will reduce the pot soil permeability, resulting in hypoxia, resulting in the phenomenon of arrows.
4, constant temperature cultivation: Clivia flowering needs 5 degrees Celsius to 8 degrees Celsius temperature difference between day and night, if the day and night let the plant in a basically the same temperature, it will affect the nutrient accumulation of Clivia, flowering period is easy to appear arrow phenomenon.
