I have grown my Clivia (common orange one) for more than 15 years - bought it 
at about 1 inch high for a dollar at the Boston Flower Show.  It took it 
about 5 years to get big enough to bloom, but has bloomed at irregular 
intervals ever since.  I have had to divide it twice - the second time last 
year when it totally broke out of its pot.  The whole side of a very heavy 
ceramic pot just broke off!  I have never been able to figure out what causes 
it to bloom or what its schedule.  It has bloomed in the late winter, early 
spring and summer.  Don't remember it ever blooming in fall or early winter.  
I put it out in a shady place in the summer and keep it beside a sunny window 
in the winter - give it the same sort of watering and fertilizer I give the 
other houseplants.  It seems to like the treatment, but I can't draw any 
conclusions about why it blooms when.  Auralie
