I’m in an urban environment so I had to grow them in pots. I actually bought really big plastic totes that I filled with dirt. However due to that space was limited as was availability to grow upwards.
In addition I travel a lot on weekends. On a nice warm, semi-rainy weekend I would come back and they would have grown a foot. On a warm, dry weekend I would come home to find them wilted and dying.
In the end I gave 6 centennial rhizomes to a buddy’s friend who lived out in the country. So they went to good use. I actually have a beam on the front porch and I’m trying to convince the Mrs. to allow me to plant a rhizome there for aesthetic purposes.
