multiplying Zephyranthes

Hi Ina 
You can do this with many plants if you keep them moist & rot free.
I've done this with crinums & they are really easy, babies shoot quickly even from quartered plants. Ive always waited until growth is most active. I've done it by accident with habranthes robustus & zephyranthes I can't think of it ??  The large fragrant white one, cutting them exactly I'n half when digging them up, I always replant the bits & some of them survive for several months but dont shoot, some re-shoot but don't recover well enough to offset, & some shoot offsets easily. Personally i think if you had a rare one it wouldn't be worth the risk, because most whole zephs shoot offsets reasonably quickly.
