   In Junos it is very easy to obtain new bulbs from their roots. Each 
complete fleshy root will produce a new bulb at the point the root was 
attached to the original bulb. Of course the main bulb is not very happy 
with the proceeding. But of Reticulatas the only propagation method known is 
that mentioned by Dennis; reticulatas are notorious for developing fatal 
fungal spots. Formerly it was controlled by giving the dormant bulbs a 
formaldehide bath, that was replaced  with Benlate that cured it completely 
but now Benlate is forbidden.
