Thanks for the reply. Laying the pot on it's side is a great idea....of course to do this I would have to sever the roots coming out of the bottom of the pot but that shouldn't do any permanent damage. By laying the pot on it's side I'll also have the rhizome above soil level to keep it a little dryer in the swamp
I assumed the large root would eventually throw off some rhizomes....or does the starting rhizome only get bigger and pieces need to be cut off for new plants? I am picturing this to be similar to a potato or am I way off?
