Spider Lillies

Someone just gave me a bag of what I believe is lycoris radiata. This friend said they were red spider lillies. Since he dug them up now, I don't think they will bloom this fall, anyway. The folliage is still attached and there is some dirt on the bulbs. I don't have a really good place to put them right now. How can I hold them over for a few weeks? Should I pot them up? Clean them up and put them in the refrigerator?

I'd pot them up. These don't require chilling and I'm not a sure a refrigerator is good place for them :-) These bulbs tend to be summer dormant, so not too surprising there is still foliage present....it should die off and disappear as the weather warms. And no reason these bulbs shouldn't bloom on schedule in early fall......but I'd want them in the ground rather than just in a pot, so plant as soon as you can.
