I would guess this started during the fridge dormancy and just didn't start spreading until it was taken out. I'm afraid I can't provide any advice for fridge dormancy, having never done it myself, but I do know it's not easy.

In the wild, when sarrs go into dormancy, they don't usually get that much water. Also, i'd recommend giving them natural dormancy if that's possible, I leave all of mine outside year round and they do very well, they get battered with freezing temps and snow during the winter but then in the spring they grow back twice as big. Note that this is not possible in warmer areas.
