Now the question do the seeds become ripe the same way as normal clivias?

Lionel...How about crosses with mirabilis?

Do they inherit the "slow development" of mirabilis plants and the faster ripening of it's berries?
We are blessed for only one reason...to share.

they are turning red like the miniata berries so I assume they are getting ripe

 :love:
Have 12 seeds. :clap:
How sensitive are the seedlings to cold.
Should I keep the seeds in the house for winter.
I know the Marbles mature plants can take up to -8C without frost but can the seedlings do the same.

Very nice specimen. Thanks for sharing all the info and the replies to questions. Very informative post.
A lot of people's biggest regret when they pass away one day, is that they when they had the time, was too reluctant to tell the people that was important to them, how much they apreciated them

Thanks Jan for sharing the photos.  That miraculous clivia is a real beauty!  What sort of potting mix are you using?  Looks like 100 % composted pine bark? 

I would have to wait many more years to see my only plant flowering.  Can't wait.   :zzz:
