It would not hurt to dust the basal plate with rooting powder (Indole 
butyric acid).  If you do this after watering the substrate and avoid 
bathing the bulb when watering for a while it will help reluctant 
rooting Hippeastrum.  I've had to do this with multiple bulbs shipped 
from Komoriya in Japan.
