Survival!

beetle_2007(3)November 20, 2007

this summer, as always, I put my 20 yr old Clivia outside. It must have got rained on too much. When I brought it in,I was just sick! The intire middle was rotted!

To my shock [and delight] 2 pups appeared beside mom,and the parent plant had NOT even flowered! Survival of the species I guess.

Sometimes they do that after being frosted, too. And from the darnedest places. I've got one behaving like a 'pregnant onion' at the moment.

Just means I have to be a lot slower about consigning them to the compost heap in spring..

LOL! is that right? Wow, these are some tough plants we have! I'm very happy that this particular plant is having pups. [I've carted it around throu different moves for twenty years!]
Do you have any pics of your 'pregnant onion clivia'? Would love to see, if you do. Have a great day!
