Your Clivia miniata blooms from spring to summer (occasionally winter) Grow in a good soil based potting soil with the addition of leaf mold and grit (canary gravel works fine). They like bright filtered or indirect light. Water weekly and fertilize during growing season, but.taper off watering as much during the winter months. Let it dry out between waterings. Clivias resent root disturbance and tend to flower best when slightly rootbound. Hope this helps
