Kaffir Lily

Posted in Indoor Flowers

How much time did you spend on looking for some information about Kaffir Lily and what decision did you take after having satisfied your curiosity? This plant is originary from South Africa and biologically speaking, it is part of the Iris family. Thus, these plants are also named Kaffir lilies and people still look for them.

The month that suits Kaffir Lily best is October, but since it grows in South Africa, not every climatic area is perfect for this plant. It has some red flowers and a normal day for Kaffir Lily starts with some dewdrops right before the sun sets. If you are lucky enough to see such a plant at that early moment of the day you will easily notice some yellow parts which have a strong connection with their name.

As soon as the sun goes down, the image of this plant also changes. Thus, we assist at what we call the closure of the flowers until the next day. The same thing happens for a couple of weeks, so the process follows a continuous routine.

Regarding the parts where one can find these plants, one can start by noticing that they prefer the wet areas, since they love water and humidity. Thus, they can be easily found in Cape, on the East and there would be no surprise to discover such plans in cliff edges. This is explained by the fact that Kaffir Lily prefer the warm summers and the dry winters. If winters happen to be also cold and summers wet, they will grow more than naturally and the view of these plants will impress almost everyone that looks at them.

On the other hand, South Africa is known for its mountainous ground and this is not the best option for Kaffir Lily. Fortunately, the terrain from the valleys is perfect for the bulbous plants and thus the plant we chose to talk about is more than adequate for this part of the world. Take into account the fact that the terrain is also perfect for rhizomatous species and the description fits perfectly to the Kaffir Lily.

It is amazing watching this plan during its growth, but finding the right area to seed it is a very difficult task. This is why it is better to look for it in the wildlife and try to avoid making a purpose out of planting this in your own house.
