Márcio,

Take off

Para mim,o frasal "take off" pode ser usado no sentido de "pegar"(criar raízes),do Michaelis: " A semente não pegou".No "Oklahoma Gardening Forum"==>If the okra doesn't take off, grow and produce well in warmer weather, yank it out and replant.(Se o quiabo não pegar, crescer e produzir bem em clima quente,arranque e plante novamente.)


Muito boa dica!

c. take off

Take off significa tirar, então é como se fosse "tirar da terra", crescer.

Vitor, close but no cigar. You might consider checking Google's English dictionary. Again. (To become successful, flourish.)

dictionary.com gives this:

take off Informal. to achieve sudden, marked growth, success, etc.: Sales took off just before Christmas. The actor's career took off after his role in that movie.

Clearly, you wouldn't think of brussels, sprouts, eggplants and rutabagas leaving the surface of the land and flying away. You wouldn't think of, and probably never picture, them "taking a narcotic drug" or beating out a lively piano recital and then shifting into jazz. Nor would you imagine the poor vegetables suddenly leaving the place on their own static stems and fragile twigs as though they wanted to flee the gardener's menacing hoe and pruning shears. ;)

Let me say donay answered it correctly.
