I only put it in the basement after the fall frost kills the leaves. I dig it
up and put it in the basement. It was in a plastic bag, but it was open and
could breath. I have a few little tubers available for sale. I already put
all of the tubers in dirt. One is planted outdoors and the other is in a pot
outdoors on my porch. It is in the 60's so it has not stunk much yet. It got
a little warm last week and I could just barely smell it, when I stuck my
nose in the bloom.
I hope you are right about the smell not being that bad. Time will tell.

It will be happier not in the basement. You can keep it upstairs anywhere
you want after washing off all the dirt. It makes a nice conversation
piece. Keeping it in the basement will definitely delay blooming. It will
bloom earlier if it's warm. Also, putting it in a plastic bag isn't the
best thing. If you really want to bag it you should keep it in paper so it
can breathe a bit.
And as I said before, I'll happily pay shipping for any offsets you want to
send me. You don't throw those away, do you?
