It would be better if you could manage to split them without damaging any of the roots. Try one pot and rather than pulling the bulbs apart, wash the compost off and let the water separate the roots. If it works for one lot then you can do the others.
I have bought pots of tete a tete like this before too. If you are planting them in the garden do you still follow the "plant at depth twice the size of the bulb" rule. Ie do you bury them green shoots and all?
Oh good - coz thats what i did. Seemed a bit mean to be burying them alive
Better a little too deep than too shallow chicky - the narcissus family never do well if the ground dries out.
In a pot it does not matter about the deep planting and if you do not want them to last then even more so. You can replant them after flowering when you clear the container. Give them a good feed and then you will eventually get flowers on them in the garden.
my self would keep until next year then re-plant them and enjoy them as they are.
