Hippeastrum cybister

The most recent  BX offering included seed of Hippeastrum cybister
contributed by Alberto Grossi. The offering was enormously popular. So I am
wondering if Alberto and others among you who grow this species could help
those who are to become its new parents. I have had the species for years,
but must be doing something wrong because my bulb is only 3 cm wide and it
has to be at least seven years old. I have recently been growing it in pure
orchid bark, and it seems to like it  and has perked up and grown. Is it
epiphytic? Does it reproduce by stolons?


Any advice would  be appreciated.


Best wishes,
