I grow various Alocasia and Colocasias here in N. New Jersey.  I unpot 
and let the tubers dry for a couple of days i the fall.  I store them in 
the attic which gets to about 45 to 50 F in winter.  Around late March I 
see the growth starting and pot them up in a real larger clay pot.

I feed with very high nitrogen fertilizer like blood meal.  I have been 
doing this for a number of years and usually give away offsets.

Have a look.
