I am putting my vft in a garage for its dormancy. It will not be getting light but the temperatures are 35-40 Fahrenheit. How should I ease my plant in and out of the garage?

When the night time temps get to about 35°F, it's probably already well into dormancy, put it in the garage and keep it damp.
In the Spring, when the temps stay above freezing at night, put it outside.
