The only reason to add live rock slowly is if you've got rock that you'll expect to have some die off, and it's going into an existing tank that you wouldn't want an ammonia spike in.

From the sounds of it, if you've got rock that's been in a tub for 5 months, you don't have anything to die off in the first place. And as tecwzrd mentioned, it's not live anymore anyhow - all the bacteria is most likely gone. I'd add it all at once if it was me.
