Dear Lester,
I`d be interested to hear if/when these plants regenerate IF only the tubers
are viable, and NOT any of the stem portion, as cassava (manihot) is
propagated from stem cuttings, not the swollen SOMETIMES edible roots.   I
would NOT try eating the roots of this varigated one, as the leaves of the
edible ones are not varigated, and NO ONE wants to play around with the
'bitter' cassava, which is the poisonous var. that is processed by natives
to make cassava bread and other edible by-products, but only by experts.
Good luck and good growing,
