I need help. Although I've grown the Dutch amaryllis for years with good results (I've got a Black Pearl blooming right now) I cant get my Cybisters to do anything but put out offsets. I'm following the same protocol for them as the Dutch amaryllis - outside in the summer, inside when temps are forecast to go below 40, sunny south facing window, watering when soil is dry with 1/2 strength liquid fertilizer for flowering house plants. The Dutch thrive, the Cybisters just multiply. I have Lima and Rosado. I nearly lost Rosado to basal bulb rot. It was infected when I got it. A change of potting soil and a drench in a fungicide took care of it. It took some time but new growth began in about three weeks and now it looks quite healthy, just no flower scapes. Lima flowered two years ago. Nothing since. Clearly, I'm doing something wrong, but what?
