These are not at all difficult to grow in pots here (So. Calif.) except 
for the reversal in annual rainfall pattern (so I have to keep them dry 
in winter and water them all summer). They eventually completely cover a 
pot in little rhizomes. They are great potted plants when in bloom, 
completely covering the pot with small pink or white flowers or 
variations thereof.
