Silly daffodil question

This is probably a dumb question but I have no experience with bulbs.

We're doing this daffodil fundraiser at work (I'm including the link if anyone's interested) and my supervisor gave me a cut daffodil in water. It hasn't bloomed yet. Would it be possible to get it to root or should I just enjoy the flower while it lasts?

Just about my favorite bulb... enjoy it while it lasts, it won't root.

Just enjoy it while it lasts. Unlike cuttings of some things, a daffodil flower stalk will not grow roots. Daffodils are grown from bulbs that are usually purchased and planted in the fall.
