(Sorry, just saw your post) This appears to me to be a Cym BB. By now, you should see more growth from that little node half way up the bulb. If so, plant it upright in a 3"-4" pot with your "mix of...

If the bulbs are hard, they are not rotten and are OK. These bulbs do not have the look of rotten brown bulbs in your photo.
