Just chuckling a bit since my A. paeoniifolius just broke dormancy early to mid September.
and is only now getting started to grow (not a good survival strategy in New England zone 5).
Seems to be growing indoors fine right now.
I'll just try to keep the A. prainii growing along through the winter (there are currently 3 leaves on it 2 semi-dried and
the third center leaf looks green and healthy.
Thank you and Ken M. for your helpful hints.

I find this species very easy to grow......just like A. paeoniifolius. If
your plant is a seedling, you can expect it to produce a series of leaves before
it enters the first dormant phase. I've had them stay up for two years
during this phase. Once the first dormancy sets in, it will establish a growth
cycle similar to paeoniifolius, coming up in the late spring when the soil gets
warm enough and going down at the end of the growing season. Here in Florida,
mine are just now showing early signs of dormancy. At the end of the growing
season, I unpot the corm, clean off the soil and inspect the corm, then
replant it and let it stay dry until it comes up in the spring. My flowering plants
produce leaves between 6 and 8 feet tall. My plants have never produced
offsets and flower every year.
