Sweet potatoes shoots

One sweet potato sprouted in storage.  I cut off the top and kept it in water and over a period of time the shoots shot up. 

I have planted this piece in the ground and hope to see a healthy creeper.  The creeper will have side shoots and the roots of the side shoots will develop into potatoes. 

I am hoping the mongoose will not attack it as this pest always goes for tubers.  We have had that experience before when we had planted potato shoots.
