Warm/cold dormancies

The behavior of your A. triphyllums is sort of the converse of the way A.
sikokianum and others have behaved when they start sprouting while still
refrigerated. It's as if they have a "dormancy time clock" which overrides
temperature considerations. I think I'll try a pot of sikokianum seedlings
and see if they'll break dormancy in several months without a cold period.
How dry did your triphyllum tubers get while being neglected? And did they
start growing again as a result of increased moisture?
