The one piece, that I identified before as the most promising, is just pushing a shoot from the fraction as if it was still the whole corm. That tiny little white thing on the tip of the eye has been grown since I replanted it after cutting it - just four days ago!

By the way: I wasn't only curious. I really did spray some fungicide :-)

And on the other pieces no growth is visible. But I think I have at least one more piece left, that looks very promising.
Since then (see above) it started to grow own roots now and has further pushed forward. I'll get you an update, as soon as the roots are visible also on a photography.
