How long does Dracancalus vulgaris need to be chilled

I was just given a Dracancalus vulgaris corm. I want to grow it in a pot because I don't trust the winter weather or soil drainage here.

I'm going to give it it's dormancy in the fridg. How long of a cold period does it need and should it be dry or a little moist?

RE: How long does Dracancalus vulgaris need to be chilled

Voodoo Lily is found in the mountains of Crete, so it will like hot dry summers and mild wet winters ( (Mediterranean climate). We did not see it at high altitude, so I would think it would only need minimal pre-chilling in a damp compost. It's also found only in forests so will not need full sun. The "soil" is very alkaline and stony ( limestone). Good luck. Ian.
