|I have had this Japanese grass in a container for quite a few years (although they are slow and was not big to start) and was wondering if anyone has done the same.|
Curious as to whether this grass would need to be divided at some point and if it starts growing from the outer most part of the pot if not divided. This is got to be my favorite grass.

I have had different varieties of hakenechloa growing in my containers for years. Just last year dug out one and chopped it up. Repotted and it bounced back wonderful. I did this about this time last year. I think it was all gold not Marc's. Not sure if that answered the question. I have never had to divide faboki (sp)

|Though I've grown it for years, I've never had it potted.|
It will need division or it could break the container.
Mine (seven of them) continue to expand at the edges but the center has never gone lifeless or vacant.
You'd probably do best to invert the pot and divide with a saw meant for gardening - not electric. The rootball is tough to penetrate.

|I grew "hak" grass in a container along with a hosta for a few years. While the hosta wasn't the happiest after a couple of years, the grass did fine. I did give it a little winter protection. If nothing else, it might be a good idea to repot it with some fresh soil and then you can assess whether it needs to be divided.|
