I have had no luck getting Raja Puri to survive the winter hear in Raleigh. I dig them and put them in my crawl space.

Is your crawl space freezing? The only other problem would be too much moisture--maybe you could dry them in the sun a little before you store them and then wrap them--dry and cool they should survive.

I dig mine about 1 week to 10 days early as most of them are too heavy for the trek of me moving them to the crawl space. This will be my third year doing this without killing a one.

I did not understand correctly, I thought you were having trouble with storing them--but you were talking about survival outdoors--right? The one I left inground did not survive--at least the stem--the corm is already sending up a new pup though.
