I've tried planting them right back as I harvested the bulbs. I've tried keeping them moist in a bucket of potting soil to replant in the fall. I've tried cutting the tips of their shell off to let moisture in. Nothing seems to work. I cut the scapes off to increase the size of the bulbs, but the corms grow on the bulb so you're going to get them and it would be nice to be able to grow them out.

If you have the room and the inclination to experiment with growing out seed, it could be fun, but planting cloves is a more reliable way to get a crop.
