    P.gigantea does not need a dry dormancy. As for ehlersai, the plant will come out of dormancy naturally when the photoperiod/temps. increase. Usually adventitious roots will be produced from between the leaves of the rosette when the plant is ready to come out of dormancy. At that time, watering can be increased little by little.
