Same here. Ripped tons of the stuff out and left just a few clumps. They get cut back to an inch or two , which keeps them in check. They soon shoot and flower.

ps. Could have sworn the purple one was bought as purple spoon with the unique flowers, and planted in that location, is there a chance it could have reverted? Seem to remember "purple spoon" not being frost hardy. If you did plant it out, perhaps its been lost to one of the odd frosts you've had.

I tend to leave them on regardless of condition, as my thinking is that the weight of the fronds helps keep that crown open. So often i've seen crowns with a small, rounded over opening at the top.

I've always managed to get growth on a tuber with the smallest hint of stem but never any luck with a tuber only.
