This came to me as C.cyrtanthiflora, but it is clearly C.caulescens. Occurring naturally in the mountain forests of Mpumalanga and Swaziland, often growing among rocks. It characteristically produces tall stems, that can flop over and trail across the ground.

This plant has flowers that seem to be slightly paler than usual, but it may just be caused by low light levels at flowering time.
The flowers are carried onshort stemmed umbels, at about the same height as the fans of leaves.The green tipped flowers can be carried in very large umbels, and the stigma and stamens are more or less enclosed within the floral tube.

The flowers go on to form round red berries. The seeds from these ones have now germinated into a handful of young seedlings.

I have two adult plants of Clivia caulescens. This is the smaller of the two, and it flowered for the first time this year. It has paler flowers than the plant illustrated above (from Reads Nursery).
