I've heard that cinnamon has medicinal properties and somewhere I think I came across a horticultural use. That sounds like a good idea. Previously I have used powdered sulfur for cuts on bulbs to prevent rotting, but not for after the fact.

Some Orchid growers I know sprinkle cinnamon on cuts and rotten spots. They
say it works quite well.

Can't hurt, might help.

Well, I dug it up.  Re Daryl's mention of soil moisture, that aspect
seemed ideal.  It wasn't wet, wasn't dry - seemed just right. Mulch was
only perhaps a half in thick.
Roots were nice and white, nothing appeared rotted. The base is solid and
woody.
I had planted a dwarf Amsonia next to it at the same time last year and it
is doing beautifully.
I potted what is left of it up; removed all the dying material. We'll wait
and see.
Gosh, I wanna order another one really bad.
