Hippeastrums & Potatoes

I grew potatoes for the first time, and I'm disappointed with the results.
Lots of very small (pea sized to golf-ball sized) tubers and only a few
fist sized, or bigger.

Next to the potatoes I grew out my Hippeastrums.  Again, I'm disappointed.
The ONLY one that increased was Germa.  Luckily that's my favorite.  Roseum
reduced significantly in number (from about 8 down to about 2).  And
others, are still the same size... just 1 bulb... and I've been growing
them for years now.  Red Lion, Orange Soverign, Santa Rosa, etc.

Germa faithfully produced one baby last year, and another one this year.
So I'm happy about that.  I expected all of them to make babies though.
