Sounds like someone covering up for foisting off a load of &%@## on you.  I
have had a couple of vendors pull that stint with or without the note.  For
me, small rhizomes sometimes fade out without ever "taking".  If they have
fresh looking increase and healthy roots on them they may not be too bad.
If most of the roots appear to have died out before digging, and any
increases are also dried out, youve been had.  You paid a regular price for
that stuff?  Make sure all your friends know where it came from.
