Leaving the old spike does not prevent flowering. You're still learning to grow them.

After flowering all I do is remove any unwanted berries leaving the old spike to dry naturally.
The old spike dries up and can be removed with a sharp pull very easily.

If I want more seeds I leave the berries to mature. After the berries have been harvested I just leave the spike to wither naturally.

Clivia can support spikes with berries from last year while still producing this years blooms without a problem.

I do the same thing Diane. After the flowers are done, I cut/pinch off all the little developing fruits, but leave the main flower scape to dry out on its own. Once it's crispy, it just breaks off.

The flower buds are really coming along! Because I bought this at a thrift store I've had no idea what color the flowers are. Looks like the standard, very beautiful, orange and should know for sure soon.
Edit: the photo does not do justice to the actual color of the buds. It's very pretty already.

Balloons in the window and on your clivia! Good show.

What a nice display your Clivia is cooking up! You'll have blooms to show us in a couple days!
