Update!

So I've had the plant growing outdoors getting full direct sunlight from around noon until 7pm or so from the time I got it.

The plant continues to grow vigorously, slowly taking more and more space BUT it seems like they have reduced their height while they're growing bushier. Any of the tall ones seem to shrivel down a bit to about 5-6 inches tall. I'm not sure if it is due to the wind drying them up or too much strong direct sunlight.

I've seen they do grow in some areas with other bushy grasses so I'm not sure if anything should be changed.

Again, they seem to be dividing well and spreading but they haven't really continued their tall-ish growth.

Looks like its light starved to me. You say it gets,7 hours of direct, full sun though so idk what could be wrong. Should have a lot more dew.

Thanks!

I'm still trying to figure out what to do and where to place it since it's right next to my VFTs and Sarracenia, both which are gaining nice coloring in that spot.

The only thing I could think of was that since it is in an area that gets exposed to a bit of wind and that it was drying them out pretty badly. They're in the landing area of the stairs that lead to our apartment so they're a bit exposed to wind.

I'll try to move them around and see if there's any changes. Thanks again! :D

UPDATE 7/3/15

It seems the plant tries to grow taller ones but the wind dries them out quickly. They remain at a fixed height but I think I might have found why the growth hasn't been as explosive as before.

A big flower stalk!

It looks like it's going to have a lot of flowers. I think there's another one on the way too. Hopefully it sets a lot of seed.
