They certainly don't need what I would call cold. I've stored mine
bare at room temp (70F/21C) as well as in 20 gallon pots of soil
stored in my basement at 59-55F (10-13C). They seem to do quite
well either way. They bloom, if large enough (4 inch/10 cm
diameter), for me in March. When the amorphophallus bloom, can
Spring be far behind?
