Slightly OT Serapias

Dear Friends;
	I just unpotted a Serapias lingua from Fausto Cen and found 
about a dozen 'bulbs'- small sausage shaped pseudobulbs with a 
pointed end still showing a 'string' of fiber from this year's growth.
	Does anyone have experience growing this terrestrial orchid outdoors?

	It is Mediterranean and I wonder if I keep it dry will it 
grow outdoors?

	It has survived in my unheated cold frame over winter.

	Help?	Jim W.
