Hi Tsuh:
           None of these Ipomoeas grow with the tuberous roots exposed. They 
tolerate being grown to show a "caudex", the same way hybrids of Cyclamen 
persicum or of garden Hippeastrums do. Of course, this practice let all 
these plants to be grown in far smaller pots.

All the best
in the pampas
