Dennis replies:  I think what was meant was if you are not going to 
divide the clump.  On the other hand, I have too much to do to go around 
slicing mother rhizomes to get their daughters off the stick!  I will 
have to ask the gentleman who sent the tip. 
Anybody else want to chime in on this one!!! 
PS. Tom, you are doing a great job with this list.  What a great group 
of people, with a wealth of knowledge.
