Seems to be very easy and spread fast. It had some 4 stems in spring, now there are 15 of them! I can't wait to see what will come up next spring. It had only 1 bloom this year, but it lasted for some 2-3 weeks which is very good. And I am sure that it will bloom more as it grows larger. Lots of acid, nutrience free water and acid soil (sand, peat, sphagnum mixed), a deep pot or bog garden, always water in the base of the pot. Light place.
