Yep, the loose end is the bottom.  The leaves come out of the junction, as do 
roots.  If you jam the ends of the tubers into the substrate, it tends to 
cause them to rot.  I rcommend you find a spot with limited current and just 
let it sit there.  It will reach the surface of a ten gallon with the third 
or fourth leaf, and al subsequent ones.
