Dormancy problems in Ornithogalum dubium

The problem is that they are supposed to be growing now aren't they?  That
is why I was asking whether it was OK to fully dry them now, even though
they "should" be growing at this time of year.  Also, with O. dubium....
how long should I dry them in the garage for now?  I just want to get them
to break dormancy so that they actually grow.

Or... would it be best to leave them now and then fully dry them in summer,
to try to bring them on at the right time.

Sorry to ask all these questions but I want to finally get these right
<grin>.  I will keep in mind when I eventually DO get them growing that I
dry them off once their leaves start to yellow...... I just wish they had
