Dear MJ,
I believe Dewey`s advice (below) is the better way to try, so ignore my
earlier post.
What species were you sucessful with by using Alan`s method??

>>DO NOTHING!  Keep it slightly moist and do nothing but wait for Spring....

>OK, the leaf has withered and there is a bulbil at the base. Help! What
