Normally interruptus has a dormant period of a few months after leaf shed and then starts growing by itself. So I would keep it dry untill life returns to it.

Too bad someone withe experience with this species did not write in. I was interested in the answer. I have no experience with it, and no literature on it. From the IAS website, I see that it is from Viet Nam.  I would leave in soil, potted up nicely, sitting on a tray of damp sand. This should maintain some little moisture if the roots needs it, and hopefully not let it rot if it wants to be dry.
Good luck!

I have an am.Interruptus that I bought off of ebay, I've kept it warm and grew it all winter and now its gone dormant. The leaf had turned yellow and was shriveled when I removed it. When I dug up the tuber, a lot of the roots had died off but it still had living white roots, some of which look like they are actively growing. The tuber also looks light in color. If I didnt know what it was, it could pass for a titanum.

My question is: will it stay dormant all year or will it wake up in a few months like a titanum would? If not then should I just let it dry out and sit or should I store it in soil?
