Hi Jim: 
         These corms and bulbs I am sending have been dormant for a month or so under very hot conditions. 
         My advice is 
pot up in very gritty soil
give them a first watering
take the pots to a cool place with very good light say at 10 C
wait, they should resprout during your winter and resume growth according to your Hemisphere
they are likely to keep on growing well beyond your spring, do not force them to go dormant. The longer the season of growth the bigger the bulbs and corms obtained. 
Hope this is of help
