Tropaeolum hookerianum

Since we are discussing tropaeolum, I got some seeds of tropaeolum 
polyphyllum from Chileflora a couple of years ago and planted then in a 
quart pot.  I had some germination but did not look after the seedlings 
properly and last summer there was no sign of life in the pot. I kept in 
anyway in a cool greenhouse over winter and to my surprise I have three 
shoots in the pot now. The tubers worked themselves to  the bottom of the 
pot and I can see then through the drainage holes. Now what? Should I repot 
it to a much larger pot?  If so, when?
Beaver Creek Nurseries had it on their site that tropaeolum polyphyllum is 
hardy to zone 5.  Is it true? Could I plant them in my gravel cactus bed 
Does anybody have any experience with growing it in zone 5, Great Lakes

Welcome Tom,

My Tropaeolum hookerianum is blooming for the first time on 2 year old 
seedlings, just opened yesterday.
