Do Cyrtanthus in the wild have a dormant period over winter?

I have Cyrtanthus Venus, which I have kept dry.  The pot is almost bone 
dry, yet the bulbs show little sign of going dormant.  It is zone 9-10 
here, so am wondering if Cyrtanthus go dormant in the wild.

Also I have some year old seedlings of Cyrtanthus Brachyscyphus.  Should 
they be allowed to carry on growing this first winter?  That is if the 
Cyrtanthus do have a naturally dormant period.
