clivia root cuttings?

There is a clivia chat group that has probably tried to answer this question 
on several occassions. Some purport that they have successfully propogated 
clivia from root cuttings. I am very sceptical and do not believe it. I only 
just recently had a very large root ball from a clivia that I broke up and 
yet no growth from this mass of plant material.

The root ball was from a very robust green centred almost terracotta flower 
(I find these types to pup like crazy) and this still hasn't helped. Maybe I 
am a non believer and I haven't lived and loved long enough so there might 
be somebody with more experience who can help with a method for you.

On the clivia note imagine how happy I was today when a guaranteed Chubb's 
Peach has flowered yellow that I have been growing for a very long time. My 
Wittig Pinks had better be pink or you will here about a crazed Australian 
on a clivia rampage.

Kind Regards and Best Wishes
