Anyone know about Eucomis?

Nashville, TN(Zone 6a)

I bought a bag of nine Eucomis Autumnalis at Costco. I read some info on a website that says you should snap off any daughters or bulblets before planting. Some of the bulbs have four or more daughters. Would you plant them as is or break off the daughters? Would you treat them with bulb dust before planting? Are these hardy in zone 6? I see a variety of opinions and I'd like to hear from someone who has grown them.

Thanks - Badger
