Triumph!  This amaryllis, Cybister Rose (mislabeled, it was supposed to be Benfica), which I bought in the fall of 2015 and which first bloomed in April 2016, finally has roots!

Amaryllis Cybister Rose, finally with roots!

Yes, that's right. This bulb produced 13 flowers on two scapes last year, but never grew any roots or leaves. Not a single one.  I babied it along on a perfectly luxurious bed of sphagnum moss, but it just sat there and did nothing.

Now, finally, 21 months after it arrived at my door, it has produced little tiny roots! There is hope!
