Thank you for purchasing. The following is the germination method that we recommend:

 

  1. Get a seed-raising mix from Bunnings or a soft soil mix such as 2/3 Peal moss and 1/3 Pearlite.
  2. Place the soil in a pot.
  3. Place the seeds on the soil and gently press into the soil halfway so the seeds are still visible.
  4. Keep moist but not soaked.
  5. Within 10-14 days, you will see a shoot come up.
  6. Push the seedling into the soil if it isn’t in far enough.
  7. Clivia will thrive in the shade with filtered light and limited direct sunlight.
  8. Fertilise with Seasol Seaweed Concentrate after the plant has produced leaves and continue to fertilise once a month.
  9. Enjoy your flowers!
  10. *Another method is to wrap the seeds in a paper towel, wet it and place in a zip-lock bag. Place in a warm, dry place such as a windowsill until you see shoots start to form, then place in a seed-raising mix.
  11. (You could try both to see which one you prefer)
