I planted one with fewer roots, just kept it watered. It bloomed this spring...

I'll bet you could bet several different answers on that question. I normally plant mine when they have much smaller roots than that, because I plant mine directly into the ground when I cut the scape and most of the time they have not developed anything but minimal roots (just little nubs). I have seen some prolifs on here with nice root systems still growing on the plant, but mine never seem to do that, so I just go ahead and plant them while they look good green and healthy. If they stay on the plant too long here, they just start drying up and dying instead of developing a nice root system.
