I thought I would add to this. My Dracunculus vulgaris came from the "down
under" about 3 years ago. It has refused to change seasons despite my
attempts to starve, force, chill and swear at it. I will try the
refrigerator route as it has just gone dormant and perhaps 2-3 months
climate change might help it "convert".

I have found that "tuberous" plants dont need to be in an airtight bag...as
a matter of fact, I am pretty sure it would get a fairly good amount of rot
When I have refrigerated tubers for an extended period, all I have done is
basically wrapped the tuber loosely in some paper towel, put it in a brown
paper bag, sort of folded the top over, and tossed it in one of the draws in
the frig. As you know, refrigerators tend to be fairly humid so I am sure
it prevents them from drying out. I have even done this with "tiny" tubers
and they have not dried out...
Hope this helps..
