I seem to have adopted one by accident. It came with some coreopsis is a plant swap. Another member helped me identify it. Now I need to know if it is safe to move it to a better location. It is right on top of the coreopsis. I want to give it some room. I don't know how much it will need. I understand that several members grow this plant. Can you give me some advice?

Hi! You could dig up & separate the plants, or take cuttings of the Opar to plant elsewhere and keep trimming off the existing plant until it runs out of energy and dies. If choosing the latter, making sure the cuttings have taken root before attempting to kill the mama would be a safe way to play it.

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

You could let the Jewel of Opar go to seed, collect the seed, kill the mother plant (or cook and eat the leaves since it is a spinach substitute), then plant the seeds next season.
