Speaking of Eucomis ...

Dear All,
	I wonder if any one can recommend winter storage for Eucomis. 
I have a few species growing in pots and I assume as the weather here 
gets colder, I'll dry these off and allow them to go dormant.
	Can the bulbs be stored dry or just left in pots, dry all 
winter. Or should they get a drop of water now and then?

	 How low a temperature  can they tolerate in pots.? Above 
freezing I assume, but is 50 F (10 C) better or room temperature 70F 
(20 C)

	Any special handling suggestions?

		Many thanks.		Jim W.
