I don't think that I'd put it in such a cold area for storage.
That's sort of what they'd encounter in the grocery store and they
usually deteriorate pretty fast.  I have mine in a 15 gal. pot and
just bring it inside and water it occasionally.  It gets put in a
cool room with very little direct sun and of course the leaves
wither away, but it does survive until Spring.  This also seems to
work pretty well with Alocasia 'Portodora'.

: I too would like to know if Xanthosoma can be put into a dormancy
: water to the pot, store in the dark garage heated to just under
40F). Also
: can Alocasia 'Calidora'. It has become too big to fit in the house
(well, I

: Thanks.
