I have received this rhizome, and I seek your expertise. This is the first rhizome shaped like this that I have seen.
As you can see, the fan is at the top of the rhizome which is positioned "directly downward." Normally, when I have planted a rhizome, I lay it more or less horizontally on the ground and its fan(s) stick straight up. However, if I lay this rhizome horizontally, the fan will be virtually parallel with the ground. If I position the fan vertically, the rhizome will be positioned straight down into the ground, and I am wondering if it will grow and multiply to deeply under the surface as a consequence. I feel that the latter choice must be the correct one, but it is so different from other plants I have received that I would like your validation.
