During the winter, I have a pleasant surprise: almost all plants in the abandoned section which had been planted with the singol tiller tecnique (like rice), have shown up. They managed to survive despite the twitch but they did not develope a particularly strong root system.
The difference lies in the fact that when you divide a mother plant, in order to produce planting material, together with some 30cm of residual aereal part, and the few centimeters of spare roots, you transplant the true heart of the plant, the crown.
This is a woody section from which the roots depart and on which the tillers are fixed.
On the contrary, when you "sow" the tillers, no matter how many you place, the crown is absent and the plant takes a long time and a lot of energy to make one new.
