the american yellow clivia that my brother gave me has continued to bloom from the center of the plant. usually clivias send up a stalk crowned with flowers, as did my sister's clivia, prince of orange (search earlier post.) now i'm trying to figure out how to teach my clivia to bloom the right way! are clivia's teachable? The flowers are 2 inches across. The plant is really pretty, thanks bro!
