How many leaves should a one year old Clivia have?
« on: March 09, 2017, 20:52:20 »
Speaking to a breeder today the inevitable question came up about what's new and he told me he has got seedlings that are four months old and has four long roots and two leaves he has been using a special root stimulating product from Holland that he finds excellent
Some breeders get four plus leaves in the first year and have plants flowering in three years,there has been a lot written about this topic and a lot of varied products used
One statement made by Rouzell keeps on coming back to me asked what she uses the answer was a short one Bounce back she said I was taken by surprise and asked why ,the answer I got was if you have good roots the rest will follow which makes perfect sense now please I don't work for them and I don't get anything from them I use it when transplanting anyplant also seedlings
There are many very good products out there with excillarator also excellent
Take note some seedlings are just genetically slow and will take years to make leaves notably Mobilisation then you get Saying Twins that flower in three years
My little tip for today hope it helps someone

my first batch of seedlings will be 3 years in August some are so big I dream they could really flower next year and some look not much different from their 1st year and yet they all get the same treatment.

Hi Athol it happens some are just genetically slow and I know some breeders cull them after the first year maybe something to do so that viqour can be bred in the plants ,but it is difficult especially when they are expensive
Thanks for sharing

no mine were cheap as hell,bought the parents from a road side seller in Warmbaths think I paid R25 each but I love them like they were R250 don't have the heart to cull them after caring for them for almost 3 years so what I will do is to make space for the ones growing is to plant those not so movers and shakers into a bed somewhere in the garden and see how they go.

In Bloemfontein we accept that it takes longer for our clivias to flower. The very hot summers and cold winters shortens our growing period. Four years are considered to be good. I have transplanted seedlings today and the norm is two leafs and three roots. I have discovered that a larger and deeper seedling tray have resulted in better roots and healthier seedlings. There will always be some strugglers  amongst your seedlings. Be patient, statistically they result in the best flowers.

Hi Andre agree with you Bloemfontein is cold only the Cheetahs that makes you get that. Warm feeling in winter when they win I am  Freestater and know that bone chilling cold I think that the short growing period does make a difference
Thanks for your participation
