Dahlia Tuber up or down

Hi folks, my first year planting Dahlias. I bought the tuber pack from dobbies but this one wasnt attached to the rest of them. It maybe fell off html thought I'd plant it anyway.
It has started to root or grow. Can anyone tell me if these pinkish parts are roots to go down in the soil or the plant growing so to face upwards?
Thanks

    Flower shoots.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    That is rare! Usually those broken bits of a tuber won't have any 'eyes' for shoots to form.

    So I should face them upwards then? That's great news if it may flower

    The angle you have there in the photo would work I think.
