When I had them - I just planted them like any old bulb, in dirt, and they did fine. It appears to me that people tend to overthink certain things like this. Just keep mostly dry if it rests. Otherwise keep it evenly moist, in bright, indirect light, and it'll be happy. 

Good air circulation is a plus.
