Cyrtanthus elatus x C. montanus Cultivation Help

I received a bulblet from BX 359 back in April 2014 - it produced two flower
stalks this summer, the first time it has flowered. It's definitely worth
the wait. 
It has produced multiple offsets, and some sit for quite a while before
putting out a leaf. I just stick them in damp soil, and they do eventually
sprout.

David,

I'm having the same problem with the bulblet I received in BX419 (I'm
guessing that's also where you got it...). Mary Sue Ittner was the
contributor.

Paging Mary Sue...

I have an offset / bulblet / bulbil / cormlet (???) of Cyrtanthus elatus x
C. montanus that refuses to show any positive signs of life (roots / shoots
/ etc). On the other hand, it's not showing any particular signs of death
(rot / decay).

I've been trying to coax it out of dormancy over the past couple of months
- have varied temperature, moisture, etc. Can anyone offer any hints or
suggestions? Am I just being impatient?

David

I have two large pots of these and small bulblets form next to the huge
bulbs at the top of the pot. Sometimes they have a small root, sometimes
not. As the pots are really crowded since I haven't repotted for a number of
years and since it's such a lovely plant, every now and then I check to see
if there are any I can pull out for the BX. It's been so long since I
started a new pot myself that I don't remember if I had trouble getting them
to grow. But I have given them to the BX many times over the years so maybe
someone else who had success can provide advice. 
Maybe it's like Arnold suggested, that it just takes some time.
