Every Clivia Miniata I have planted in our garden has been slowly but surely eaten alive by worms. It is the most distressing thing to see such a lush green plant being slowly destroyed. I have not gone the poison root for obvious reasons and so have had to say farewell, one by one, to my beloved Clivias. I have rescued the last one and potted her – I gave her a good spray down with the hosepipe in the hopes of drowning any worms. Her roots were a little dodgy, with some rotten or worm eaten and just came away in my hands. Here’s hoping some tlc will see her right and banish those nasty worms. Anyone know about these worms by the way? Any solutions? This site offers some very interesting reading on the Clivia Miniata.
