bulbs inquiry

9 years ago

I was given some "old" store-bought bags of two different types of bulbs, hyacinth and crocus. While in the bag they've sprouted out and look like this.
What should I do with them at this point? It's wintertime and I don't really have my outside gardens ready for doing any planting yet. My hope would be to do something with these inside until such time as I get around closer to spring to do some planting outside. If I put the bulbs these in an indoor pot for now, how deep should I plant them with their current stage of sprouting? Do they need much natural light for a while or can I just leave them in my windowless office cubical where they'll get at least 8 hours artificial light each day. Any comment/advice appreciated. I've never planted bulbs in my life.
