Maria,
Thank you very much for the information! Yes, I, too, have learned that the roots of the Chinese plants are very shy!  ;D

Your plant is gorgeous!

Kind regards,
Elke

Thank you guys and gals!

Nick...I don't think it will flower this season as it flowered last year.
This is quite slow growing and does need more time to grow leaves.

Elke...This could be an example to your inquiry about the 6 new leaves needed to bloom.
This Fukurin must have not grown 6-8 new leaves last season that is why it will not bloom this year.
It have very little green in it's leaves and does not manufacture enough food to be able to form a flower bud perhaps?

I don't really care much if it blooms or not as it is a sight to behold even without flowers...all year round. :)
We are blessed for only one reason...to share.

LadyClive...If you are 100% sure that your seedlings were grown from seeds of the variegated parent/s, then the anwers is yes there is a "possibility" but is not guaranteed.  They still carry the variegated genes even if they have green leaves.



I will try. One flower now and one flowered last year. I think I have pollen i the freezer from it. Don't know if it still is any good though.

 :love: what a beautiful  Fukurin....I am still hoping one of my variegates will turn into one...

i see that even the new offset  produced is going to be a nice fukurin. I did buy a fukurin from a friend but the middle went blind and it is producing only one new shoot but its albino...maybe i can carefully cut that out and hopefully the new offset could be more promising.

Hello to all!

I am so new to clivias and trying to learn as much as I can about it.

Maria, I had such a good laugh over a steaming hot cup of coffee while reading your thread this morning. I mean, how can this knowledgeable clivia girl make such a statement  LOL  LOL  LOL
It has been such a pleasure to follow the journey of a Clivia flower unfolding in the far USA. How quick and how far you have come girl. Your Clivia spirit is as refreshing as the fusion of fragrances from the raw orange-blossom honey in my cup of strong black filter coffee.
Although not a regular to the forum these days, I must say that by logging in today I had the most refreshing start to my day.

Kind regards
