This one has sent out a good set of roots.

Here's a closeup of the roots.

Rooted plants at various stages of development.

A group portrait. There are more off stage: the rooting process was quite successful.

Individual plants at various stages of growth.

If properly fed and watered, some of these plants will eventually grow to more than 2 meters in height and produce numerous flowers.
