Higher Gnosis is likely if you're going to use ritual casting for extra dice (since low Gnosis ritual intervals takes ages), meaning you already get extra dice from that and more Yantra slots. Higher Arcanum rating would also grant extra dice as well as extra Primary Factor steps.

You need a total of 12 factor steps (3 for Duration 1 month, and 9 for Potency 10), with up to 3 of those coming from a higher Arcanum rating. If stats are maxed, you end up at 15-(2*9)= -3 dice, and if you get the full +5 from extra ritual intervals you end up with a positive dice pool before you even start applying Willpower or Yantras. Yantras by themselves could also completely negate the penalties for such a character (5+4+3+2+2+2=18).

It's rare for someone to have a character with maxed Gnosis, but this demonstrates how large the margin could be.
