Grow Clivia miniata in containers of houseplant compost in a well-lit situation but out of direct sunlight. Feed with a light, general fertiliser from when the flower buds emerge until it stops growing in autumn. Remove faded blooms as and when is necessary. In winter, move to a cool spot (around 10°C), and reduce watering (but don’t let it dry out completely). Move to a warmer room when the flower buds start to develop.
