Here's the short story: My roommates puppy got past my temporary barricades and dug up 2 hills with 2 freshly planted rhizomes. I found 2 of 4 in the yard the next day. They're fine and are growing fine. Now, here I am 2 weeks later drinking homebrews with friends in the backyard and my gf says to the pup "bring me that stick" and I say after a 1 second glance, "RHIZOME!"
It's really dry but we have had some rainy days lately. It's soaking in water now and after 2hours or so I'll plant it. What your thoughts? How hardy are these plants.... Time will tell!
