When I tried growing Fairfax 

My reply:

Fairfax and Sparkle are both "odd", this is especially true in 
refernce to Fairfax.  Both plants like decaying wood to grow in, not 
straw of grassy type mulches.  Fairfax also like a bit more shade and 
cool feet.   I find both runner like crazy when allowed to amble over 
a pile of wood chips.  Both seem to perform less than optimally when 
highly cultivated, in black plastic culture, or even in my favorite 
method of newspaper and woodchips.

Oddly I do not get disease problems with either when grown on 
woodchips, but they get the molds when grown in a more conventional 

All the best in growing delicious things to send me  :)

the fluffy one
