My first question: I am delighted, but I am concerned about rooting it -- it was cut off from the main plant, and there isn't much root to work with (as you can see from the photos). Can I just stick it in the ground? Or do I need to pot it up carefully first and keep an eye on it? Any suggestions? Will it be an uphill battle to root it, especially given that it is so late in the year?
My second question: Any guesses as to the cultivar? As you may be able to tell from the photos, the top side of the leaves (is that the right term?) is green, while the underside is variegated.
