Wonderful photos Francois.  Thank you for these great habitat shots.  It looks like the plants are in almost full sun and yet show very little leaf burn.  They would appear much more tolerant of high light intensity than the other species.

Thanks Coetie for sharing your photos and showing the mirabilis in habitat. It is still a dream for me to have a clivia mirabilis in my clivia collection :'(. Then I will have all six species.

Hi Coetie
My dream has come true. I received the last named clivia spices in my collection last week. Two clivia mirabilis seedlings, now it is going to be a long wait to see them flowering. Thanks to a fellow clivia lover from the Northren Clivia Club for sharing  the order of clivia mirabilis seedlings.

Hi Frits,

Congratulations! However, I have to warn you it might be a long time before you get any flowers! I have had an adult plant for 4 years and it still has to flower.  :-\

Hopefully, you are younger than me and can therefore afford to wait!   :mmm:

 It is beautiful. I was in the vicinity of Oorlogspoort earlier this month , but unfortunately I did not get permission to enter it and have a look at the habitat maribilis. Next time I will contact you Coetie.

Thanks Pieter do you think 10 years your junior. Will it give me enough time to see the mirabilis plant flowering with TLC?

Yes Danie
There is only six clivia species. The hybrids are not species but crosses of the six species.
You never know maybe a seventh species is waiting to be discovered, as mirabilis was only discovered in the last two decades.
