We've had to move and/or remove our Mother of All Horemanii's (MOAH) 
three or four times.  If you cut a piece off the rhizome, you will 
notice lots of bumps.  These bumps turn into plantlets if the rhizome 
piece is placed on top of the gravel.  Once the plantlets have decent
roots, cut them off the rhizome and watch 'em grow.

The last time we trimmed the rhizome, the piece still in the gravel
must have panicked, because now there are three or four good size
plants growing from this same 8" long rhizome.
