In my experience the rhizome of Cryptostephanus haemanthoides is merely an
attachment point for the shoot and the roots: the roots are the primary
storage organ. I cannot think that the prognosis for a rootless rhizome is
very good, unless it is able to make a shoot and new root growth to enable
it slowly to build up strength.
