My experience, which only just departs from the anecdotal, although I use it
as a demonstration in propagation class, is that it assists breaking
dormancy of the undeground structures if you carefully peel back the dry and
colored scales immediately around the terminal bud. The exposed greenish
tissue seems to be stimulated into growing out its bud  etc.

Beauty.  my experience in the past with these plants is that they tend to go
dormant and never come up again.  these 2 were large plants though and i'm
hoping that they will sprout again.  is there anything i can do (besides
storing them dry) to encourage new growth?  thanks.
