I think you will eventually get slips, worth to try. End of January/begin of Febrauary is good time to start to get slips at the spring time, ready to plant. It usually takes 2-3 months for them to arrive and grow. In most cases, roots appear first, so be patient.

First roots appear in soil:

No any single shot though. So, need to keep waiting. It's still alive, maybe it will wake up. It takes long time, as I can see. Either it will grow or it will rot away, there is no other scenarios
