Although it's true that the literature on Tigridia pavoina recommends dry
storage, I know from repeated personal experience that freshly dug, damp
bulbs with live roots attached store very well if put in a zip lock plastic
bag placed in the vegetable bin of the household refrigerator. I get much
better results with this unorthodox method than I do from bulbs stored dry
at room temperature.
