Clivia is a tropical plant form Africa and can be grown outdoors in a hot climate, not here. It does not even benefit from being outdoors in summer.

Keep it in a coolish place indoors with light for part of the day, a west-facing window, for instance. Feed once every two weeks and keep it just nicely moist, not wet.
