Not enough light cause no blooms with Amaryllis, Amaryllis use their leaves to produce energy for next year’s flowers. Give the plant plenty of bright light to help it build up its reserves for flowers.

It’s a Clivia (Clivia miniata), Kaffir lily or Forest lily (If you’re being thoroughly PC). It likes bright light to bloom or lower light if you’re okay with just leaves. A “chill” in the fall/winter to around 40F for a couple weeks also helps initiate flowers. Here in SoCal we grow them in shade outside.

Clivia Miniata (Bush Lily) Care Guide​

The Clivia Miniata, also known as Bush Lily, Natal Lily, and Kaffir Lily, is a clump-forming flowering plant that originates from the woodlands of South Africa and Eswatini. The plant has a history of being cultivated for over two centuries in various regions. It has since been introduced to the United States. Easy to grow, it rarely needs extra care or attention. Its eye-popping green leaves contrast beautifully with the color of its flowers—red, yellow, and orange shades are available for any garden or indoors—creating an excellent contrast with your garden's colors.
