Default Re: Corm propagation a success - 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.
It broke from the high winds ?
