    Default Clivia Diseases

    For all the gardeners out there familiar with Clivias, for some reason I am losing clivias at a rapid rate, seems like some kind of rot, but could also be insects.

    See photos, anyone got a idea what could be causing it and how to cure it?

    Probably worms! I have to spray my Clivias regularly. Try Garden Ripcord.

    This. They destroy Clivia, Agapathus, etc reall quickly. They are little striped worms that sit between the leaves close to the stem/base of the plant and then "cut" the leaves at the base. I spray mine with Cypermethrin - make sure you spray in between the leaves close to the stem of the plant as this is where they hide.

    I don't have the worm but some of mine have not flowered for 2 years.

    They are watered and fertilised.

    They normally start to flower at the start of spring but this season thy acted very strange. They started to flower early August and some are still flowering.
