I don't know about others, but mine definitely had a few LONG runners sent
out from it.  Mostly they were within the foot, but 2 or three appeared a
long way away and when I went to pull them out I found that they had a
runner thread leading back to the main clump (otherwise I would have
assumed they were seedlings).  That was when all the warning bells went off

I don't know how others here in the land of Oz have found them?
