Early days yet. This plant is a gross feeder. I'm using sheep manure and due to the lateness of the my order, (Autumn) seeing a lot of leaf die back with strong rhizome growth but slow replacement leaf growth. Expecting good leaf growth in spring.

Prefers living under part shade, no direct sunlight. Responds well to seasol , do not let it dry out. Expands in all directions.
