just sat there for a couple of months. Then I noticed a few
small growths coming up around it by last Fall. I overwintered
it in a friend's greenhouse as I didn't want to risk losing it.

shoots there was but it was looking crowded. I decided to
separate and repot it and check on the health of the original
tuber. On separating it, I discovered that I had seventeen
plants growing in that pot! I also noticed that this cross
appears to be somewhat stoloniferous as I found a couple that
were developing small tubers some distance away from the main
