I don't have a problem as enviable as yours. I do get lots of pups from: Musa Bajzoo, Y. Gloriosa, Y. Recurvifolia, Alocasia, Colocasia and I give them away or keep them as backups. I dig out about 15 total per year and I whack about 15 for composting. The main problem is the hassle of keeping them watered in pots. I keep more and more in pots in the ground to avoid the extra summer watering. I pull them up 2x per year to cut the roots that grow through the drain holes. I enjoy seeing their progress while I have them. I keep the over-achievers. I plant them in rows before potting. But I don't have 100's and mine are not large.
A suggestion is to pot your more interesting or mysterious ones in case some ultimately have superior qualities. Then for the ones that are easiest to dig out, plant them corn-row style and give them less care. Any nice ones from the rows just pot for give-aways. Whack the rest.
