Chick, both roots and rhizomes. 

Have used that technique for quite a while, especially with old plants that when divided, you have lots of old root masses and rhizomes that look dead.

I do soak them in bleach, always, and sometimes put some paper or dirt in the bagsto hold moisture. Too much moisture and they rot. Keep in cool dark place - simulate underground area.

One year we had 50+ bags of roots, couldn't get them all planted when they started to grow. Sometimes takes 6-8 weeks to sprout. Like a old potato maybe?
