Default Re: Corm propagation a success - Ae Ae?

I came out Saturday morning to find my Ae Ae lying on the ground with the bottom 3 inches of the P-Stem rotted. I cut away most of the rot (maybe I should go deeper to get it all?) and it seems to be a reasonably healthy corm. Anyone have suggestions on corm propagation for an Ae Ae?
Am I better to leave the whole corm intact or quarter it up?

It seems to have a small sucker that had yet to break the ground. Should I separate that?

Do I need to make sure I get reid of all of the rot?

Should I use a fungicide on it?

Thanks. It's too expensive of a plant to lose it all together.
