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?
Get rid of all the rot. Some fungicide might help, but dousing it with hydrogen peroxide after you've cut off all the rot is probably sufficient -- it has been for me.

Don't separate that incipient pup if it's attached to a big chunk of healthy corm -- the stored reserves should help it grow well.

I'd leave the corm whole, it seems a little safer, but cutting them up works, too.
