This is the Mother plant after separating , check the top independant roots.
Would you leave it like that ?
Guess what I did ?

Hi Lionel

I bet you cut the mother plant below the new roots and replanted the "stump" so that it would generate more offsets?  It must be something special??

Very cool technique, Lionel.
Has it been proven?  Any reason for the cross hatching?

Giovanni ,
            Clivias are very hardy , best time is Spring / Summer for potting up and taking off offsets , but anytime is also OK.

Ripcord is VERY Poisonous , it is a blessing you have no money to get hold of any .
 
I am sure you learn about environmental damage at school , investigate natural growing techniques on the internet.

You don`t have thousands of plants so the BEST you can do is to check your plants EVERY day and pick off the worms
and squash them.

Be patient and truly look after the plants you have ,you are young , so concentrate on perfecting the cultivation of the clivias you have.

Try to grow them perfectly , again be patient and concentrate on KNOWLEDGE .

You have a lot of time to accumulate a good collection , treasure what you have .
Hope this helps,
Regards ,your friend in clivias,
                                       Lionel.

Maybe the stump should have it's own thread so we can watch it grow and develop and maybe someday bloom!  I like the update threads but I imagine that is easier said than done in a collection your size Lionel!  Have fun looking good! What a great plant huge and healthy and props to your great assistant!!  Does she have her own plants?

I have done it before Gail.

I do not usualy cut the cross .

Ian Coates suggested it to me on Monday, he says I will definitely get 4 nodules forming.

I have had 4 form without the cross cut , but sometimes only 2 .
Regards,
           Lionel.

It's doesn't look like a deep cut, but is it the photo?
Will a shallow cut be enough?

Gail , the cut must be enough to make definite seperations , so right down to just above the roots.

Tedd  , Here is a plant " KING KONG " I bought 2 or 3 years ago that rotted and I had to cut it , it has 4 offsets and could flower next year .
I did not cut a cross into it .
Cindy our Assistant does not grow plants at home .
By the way , I do most of the separating of offsets, Cindy  held whilst I took the Pics.
It is a delicate job and not to be done when in a hurry.
I serarate each intertwined root , and if I get impatient ,I leave it be for awhile and come back when I am rested and feeling patient .

What a way to make multiple of offsets!  :clap: 

Just imagine the application of this this method on some of the most desirable Clivias, esp. those set offsets painfully slow. I have heard Conway's Ramona, Sabrine Delphine, and the "Original Four Marys" are among the most reluctant players to set offsets.  Anyone has these desirable plants to try this method out?   :good:
