Stalked Clivia (Eng.), Stam Clivia, Boslelie (Afr.)
Clivia caulescens is an unusual species to the other clivias due to a very tall “trunk” that can sprout offshoots and which lead to the name stem Clivia. The specific name caulescens refers to the fact that this species has a stem. Its leaves are more robust than the common Clivia and are held more upright, giving the plant somewhat of an appearance of a Bromeliad. As a strong and easy grower, this plant is uncommon in cultivation, and fresh seeds are rarely seen for sale.
