New to this forum and have questions
I have read throug from oldest to most recent posting before posting myself. Boy, have things gotten sopshisticated fromwhere they started out!! A most impressive pool of knowledge and experience. I have had my clivia since 1980, basic orange variety, blooms off and on. But based on what I have read and distilled, I could be doing several things differently. The original mother plant is long ago given away, but I saved a pup and continued. Most recently divided about 10 years ago, 8 very large offshoots around the main plant in a 10" pot. A very large and impressive plant. But, I realize it needs to be divided as it is starting to heave out of the pot. I can do that in spring before it starts to grow again. After summering outside under the trees, I have moved inside. West facing window but screened by a porch so no direct sun. I have stopped watering / fertilizing. Room it is in is 60 - 68 degrees max in winter. Hasn't flowered in several years. Questions: Should I move it to my basement where it could be in an unheated window? When I repot should I keep only one plant per pot? Should I keep it to only one plant per pot? How often do I repot/ remove the pups? I always thought they liked to be crowded. I can grow a beautiful healthy plant, they just don't bloom that often. Any help would be appreciated.
