looking at it all year round it looks like basjoo and sikki look like when they get leggy with not enough light.

it is like this in as much sun as it can have here so I wonder if it is just like that or if my sun is just not strong enough for it.

it seems to grow ok, when ever I water it it pushes out some more rollers.

maybe the one in the ground has put out runners but I have two in pots and last I checked neither had started making rhizomes.

I performed surgery on mine today to take off the pups, all were easy to remove and came with a some good roots so fingers crossed all will be ok.

I have 4 pups, I was hoping to keep them in small pots to keep postage down but that hasn't been possible. I'll grow them on for a few weeks to make sure they're ok then see about posting out.

I've got Nige, Flounder and Fieldfest on the list who should've received pm's.
