This cultivar is wonderful. The way the laterals arch reminds me, by turns, of a crab spider set to pounce, a dancing crane and then, naturally, of the famous Karate Kid move. I have a nice happy division of one of the original pieces and would love this one, if you’re parting with divisions. Regarding keeping it in the mix, I agree that high light is important but it also needs to be happy about the mix when the butt of the stolon touches down. I have kept mine clumpy by waiting until it’s long, then bending it down over the course of a couple weeks, then gently placing a piece of granite heavy enough to hold the butt against the mix but not heavy enough to break or crush the stolon. I’ve broken a couple; oops. I also never, ever get water in the crowns.
