Cutting Dahlia tubers

Some people have good luck when taking Dahlia cuttings, whilst others fail because of rotting.  I have some pot-grown tubers which are quite congested and difficult to separate.When they sprout in the spring, would a cutting be less susceptible to rotting if it has a (variable) portion of the tuber attached.  Should I then dust the cut surface with Sulphur, and plant straight away,  or will it be detrimental to let the cut dry for a few days before potting up?
