This plant must be totally pot bound to Flower
The way it grows is similar to the amarillis / hippeastrum
Flowers on long stalks, furry grey-green thick leaves come after and become quite big and a bit floppy
Propogation by bulbs from main plant, which will multiply and when totally pot-bound will flower (with encouragement)
It flowers in September into October and then the leaves grow much bigger and go on for what seems like forever, I cut them off around early spring and rest it in a dark place with no water until the bulb begins to develop its flower stems, little leaves and flowers
If I had to guess, Amaryllis or Orchid but I can find no reference to it in my extensive gardening library
Any clue would be lovely. Thank you
Is it a clivia?
Do you have a photograph?
I am in the middle of uploading them now - watch this space
I am new to this wonderful site so still feeling my way around
I'll get it eventually, do I have to resize them?
SORRY, I have been unable to keep the images on the thread, I have requested help.
Click on the green tree icon. Use select to pick the photo off your desktop. then Upload, which can take a while, then save. It should then appear. then submit.
Thank you, I have tried several times and the photos up-load to the thread OK but they don't stay there. I don't remember a 'submit button'. Not one to give up, I will try again and look for the magic button, thanks for your help
I dont think its an amaryllis or a clivia or an orchid. Other than that I have no idea.
Interesting flower though.
Well done, 2wheelgardener.
