Alan, I'll pass along what I do with my bulbs and maybe that will help.
Pot up in good soil, leaving the neck exposed. Pot size should be just barely larger than the bulb. A tall pot is best because they develop huge root systems. Some "experts" say to leave the top third of the bulb above the soil line but I've never done it that way. Soil is kept moist but not wet and soggy. I leave the bulbs in a dimly lit room until new growth starts and then they are moved to a sunny window.
It can take several weeks for them to start their show so just be patient.
I just put all of mine to bed for about six or eight weeks and I am already anxious to get them started for a new round of gorgeous flowers
. This is one of my favorites...
