information: Kaffir Lily is an undemanding and an easy
to grow indoor flowering house plant. Kaffir Lilies are slow growers that eventually will become quite
large. Flowers are most common in late winter to early spring. All
parts of Clivia miniata are somewhat poisonous and may cause mild
upset stomach if ingested. Not a good choice for folks who own
house cats. Sap from the plants leaves or roots may
irritate sensitive skin.
Kaffir Lilies are grown outdoors in temperate
areas in the shade. As an indoor flowering house plant place them in any well lit location.
Full sun is to strong... so don't place them to near a south
window. Water when the soil has dried about 1" from the
surface. If your Kaffir Lily is actively growing fertilize every two
weeks with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Once your plant sets
flower buds stop feeding and sit back and enjoy the flowers. After flowering
the plant may rest. When it starts growing again... start feeding
