The Klivie is still known under the name Riemenblatt. It comes originally from Africa, but is also widely used in Europe. However, the Klivie has kept its old habits in this country. She has her resting time in the fall, which lasts until the end of January. Then she presents us with her beautiful flowers. With good care the Klivie blooms from February to May. But there are plants that bloom twice a year. She likes a sunny and warm location, but no direct sun. A windowsill would be just ideal. Our tip is: do not change the location of this houseplant, she just does not like it! Pour moderately in the growing season, avoiding waterlogging. Its flower stem is 30-40 cm high and has delicate, orange-colored leaves. Sometimes the roots of the Klivie grow out of the pot, but that should not bother you. Frequent transplanting can have a negative impact on flowering and you certainly do not want that, right?
The beautiful Klivie surprised us from the end of January by its orange flowers.
A little later than the Klivie, only in April flourishes the Gloxinie, whose beautiful flowers can be admired until the advent of autumn. The flower tubes of this potted flower look like made of fine velvet and are dyed in red or purple. The color palette of the flowers is large in each case, there are Gloxinien, which bloom in tender pink and white. This houseplant came from Brazil to Europe about 200 years ago and has settled in well with us. Of course, there are numerous hybrids, including the Sinningia flowers are very popular. The gloxinia prefers a light to partially shaded location where the humidity is quite high. In the growing season you need to water regularly, but keep the tray empty and fertilize once a week. After flowering, you can then keep the gloxinia dry and remove the withered leaves.
The red blooms of Gloxinia definitely attract all eyes.
The delicate blooms of the Gloxinie can occur in different colors from the typical for this ornamental red and violet tones over pink to white.
