You will realise the skin would be thicker and thicker after they stood
in water for several days. And eventually it swelled (above picture 2) and sprouted on 19th December (picture 4).
The stem would stand straight (picture 5); if you adjust its direction everyday by turning the container towards the indirect sunlight.
On 29-12-2011 discovered new growth (picture 6) next to the main stem.
Two side shoots (picture 7&8) appearing from 6th to 8th January 2012.
The side shoots were expanding (picture 11); and came more new shoots on 23-1-2012 (picture 12).
One of the side shoot grew into leaf and many mini roots growing along (picture 15&16).
When it is strong and stabled; it would produce mini roots also at the bottom of the stem.
The mini roots would slowly expanded into strong arms. Soon four of
them turned into 4 purplish white arms. Thereafter, the bottom ones
started to extend their length; and many tiny side roots were grown
along the vines.
One of the bottom root eventually grown above the container with mini
sized leaves. And you need to prepare a larger container when this
container is no longer fit.
The extended length of the root is young and tender; so small kids can handle it with ease.
When the root could not stand straight with its length; and you cannot provide a taller container; you can guide it into a circle (picture 18); they would be pretty happy to stay at the bottom of the container.
You can also place them on mineral stones (picture 19) for indoor decoration.
