Broad leaf?
« on: June 29, 2007, 18:53:21 »
My daughter has taken a photo of these Clivia at the university. Their professor has brought the Clivia years ago from South Africa. She blossoms darkly orange. The gardeners have cut off the seeds. But 1 seed has hidden on the ground..

Yes, this plant is surely a broad leaf. Looks very similar to the early Monk clivia cultivar introduced into China from Japan about 70 years ago.

Christine, that plant needs some TLC, maybe you should 'take care' of them for the University

Gideon,

I have been searching an hour for the fertilizer * TLC * ???
Now I found it by Google ;D.

The best thing is to dig the clivia out and pamper in my greenhouse.

Christine
You've given me a good belly-laugh!
But that plant MUST be rescued.
With TLC it will flourish - and by the sounds of things you've got plenty ...
TLAs are the bane of my life, but this one I like

That is just too funny...my wife thinks I am nuts, sitting here laughing at the Laptop...

Sorry, I should have written TLC - Tender Loving Care, and yes, I do think it should be properly taken care of.

I can understand, lucky tanteEmma doesn't use German abbreviations for stuff as I would be gone for good.
