I got this plant from a florist shop. The owner did not know what it is. I was hoping it is a clivia , then the owner got a book and point to me said it is a amaryllis. Thanks in advance
You got your wish. Your plant is a Clivia and nice-looking, too. Toni
Thank you. Toni, the leaves are a little bit yellow, is that normal or what could cause the yellowing ?
The 'fading' could be from too much sunlight.
Believe me, if it were yellowing you would know it, and the yellowing usually is very yellow starting at the tips.
Thank you mike,
The clivia is heavily root-bounded, it almost has no soil, I reported it into a gritty mix with 2 parts of barks and pruned sone long roots shot(maybe I should not). That was 2 days ago and I have not watered. We will see how it responds to my treatment.
And yes I am very glad it is clivia!
Looks like it needs fertilizer to me.
Greendale. Your Clivia looks green, very healthy, and symetrically potted.
When Clivia leaves yellow, it's usually due to over-watering.
Sometimes, older, lower foliage yellows naturally.
Oh, goodness, yes! Clivia roots get large. My oldest Clive cracked 3 pots. lol. It's now in a 10" container.
Cons repotting Clivias. '
Sometimes' repotting disturbs the following years' blooms.
Also, Clivias are more likely to flower when, 'somewhat' pot bound, although, once roots fill the pot to the point water drains w/o wetting roots, Clivia definately needs a larger container.
Green, is there a reason you didn't water after repotting?
Howdy Mike. You have Clivias, right?
I did not water the clivia because I pruned some very long roots when repotting. So I thought wait two days to water it. And fertilize will be my next step. It has yellow spot on the leaves, and the color is not very dark green like I saw on the web. As I said it was very root bound when I bought it, so I think lack of nutrition is a reasonable guess too. I will start fertilize it soon, it already got watered once after the repotting.
Here are some pictures show the yellow spots
