Amorphophallus gigas dormancy breaking?

My plant of A. gigas went dormant last autumn. I have been checking on the tuber and it is still there in the pot. Not rotted or anything. I know this needs keeping sort of barely most (not bone dry) for dormancy, which it has, more or less.

But how long do I wait for it break this dormancy? And is there anything I can do to prompt it?

You can't force them to break dormancy - and they can stay dormant for up to a year!
