Helicodiceros question

I planted my newly-aquired Helicodiceros tuber last fall in barely moist 
soil. I waited about a week and then watered. I watered about once each 
two weeks all winter, and nothing happened. We had a cold winter for 
Phoenix, with about 20 nights at my house below freezing. The following 
days are always well above freezing.

Two weeks ago our weather suddenly went from 45 degree nights / 65 
degree days to 65 degree nights / 90 degree days. The plant sprouted and 
is growing.

Is this unusual behavior?
