Hedychiums grow well down here.....too well actually. I've given mine away as they can be aggressive and bully any neighbouring plants.
used to divide them....sell them.....and they made vigorous growth. Good looking in pots. Exotic looking and many have great late summer scent.
Granma, I would start watering when shoots are seen and not allow them to become potbound but regularly pot on. Feeding, watering and sunshine for me.
your purchase sounds like it died down prematurely but if it's sound new growth should show naturally very soon. Wouldn't "fiddle" with it right now.
