Phaedranessa culture

Dear All,
         I have several species of Phaedranessa bulbs.  The only one I am 
sure of the ID is the one I bought from Telos Rare Bulbs and it blooms 
fairly well.  Others I have raised from seed have never bloomed.
         I recall reading Phaedranessa requires a drought period.  Can 
anyone tell me when to withhold water and for how long a period?
         I can never get a clear sense of dormancy because when the mother 
bulb is dormant, the daughter offset is growing.  What to do?

Kind regards,  Joyce Miller
