 See the pbs wiki for Fritillaria raddeana
and this page for some climate data on Khorassan province, NE Iran

an air conditioned building might be OK for dormant Fritillaria raddeana in
Summer but  to chill it in a refrigerator before it has started rooting in
Autumn seems very odd to me -when I think of it's home climate.
