    Ambitious is right...one of the keikis I took off of it a few months ago is also spiking. I'm wondering if I overfed it, or if it has plans to take over my growing area...

    Hmm...If they are plotting, I think it would be best to separate them so they can't organize a take-over. Sending keikis several states away ought to keep them from getting unruly, someplace like...Iowa, maybe.

    This looks like it has started it's own form of stem propagation. Be careful that they don't recruit the rest of you flock to devious plans.
