Christmas Amaryllis Post-Christmas No Bloom - 2018

The last time we checked-in on our Christmas Amaryllis, I was hopeful that we'd see a Christmas flower.  Alas, Christmas Day has come and gone and we're still staring at a bud with no flowers.  But, what is most interesting is that this is a 'short' bulb.  I've been - basically - poisoning the bulb with a 8% dilution of alcohol in an attempt to keep it from getting too tall.  It appears to be working.  But that doesn't change the fact that our bulb isn't going to flower any time soon.
