I face all my clivias northward under our eaves here in San Jose CA. They do
get turned occasionally and they do bloom with just northern light. They are
in pots and are hand watered sparingly. The seeds start easily and if potted
up properly, they will bloom in about four years for me.

I'm sorry I shouldn't have use the word "sun" as I know they need 
shade.  But I have it under the canopy that faces south, so there is a 
lot of light coming in and so I wonder if there is a better side that 
can be exposed to the most light.
