As a member of the lily family, it will need a yearly dormancy. This means sustained temperatures around 45F or roughly 7C for several weeks to a couple of months. Even if the cool temps are not met completely, they will still need to remain dry for the dormancy. Only a small spoonful of water on occasion will be plenty.

The better option will be forcing dormancy.
