Trying escape

Was out this morning in between rain showers looking through my plants. Went to look at my Cyphostemma hardyii x cirrhosum cuttings I took last year. Tried to pick it up and it wouldn't budge.

So I gave it a good yank and found a tuber that had secured in the raised bed.

These were cut last spring and rooted, the photo was taken about 8wks after cutting.

I took the right one to do a root over rock staging since it didn't have any large tubers yet.

Then buried rock and roots in a square pot. A square one was chosen over round because in the latter the roots tend to just circle within the container, in the former the roots hit the sides or corner and deflect in another direction.

This is how it looks today
