Well I think it has been 3 years, maybe more it could be 4. Three years for what you ask? For this Clivia to bloom from seed! Now I know why they cost so much, it is pretty though. Anyway enjoy 3 years of hard work, HA! Beautiful day here in Texas, about 65 to 70 degrees and sunny. The only complaint is the wind that ripped a greenhouse roof off, oh well can't be perfect.
