And the bad news is that when you do pull it up, you probably do not get the underground "nut" from which it grew and from which others will soon grow.

I have been told that if you let one bloom, you then have to pull it up 15 times.

They thrive in damp soil so they will go away ( or ay least sleep) if let go dry for awhile.
