Here is a video about using stems. They are using a similar method to what we are discussing, but with clean, disease free potato material.

The goal is cleaner seed tubers to sell because it would be fewer generations between tissue culture and sale to customers

4 plants I topped @5 weeks.
2 didn't set any roots but stayed alive and green.
The anemic looking one had a goiter that is sprouting leaves.
The biggest one made roots and sent out another shoot.
I would say the bigger the better if you are topping plants.
Shoe-box size box no drainage potting soil mix kept wet.

Nice to see some other people got some useful info from this post. Longer season potatoes do better with this method. I do it to multiply plants when I only have 1 seed potato.
