They grow slow and are capable of being buried for long period without harm. Lots of turning keeps them round. I am trying to cover a branch with the stuff.. super slow... It has 3 forms.. sort loose filament, ball and a mat type growth.

I guess i dont know why it would be dying. Competition or imbalance?
