Could it be like a strawberry plant? They send out little stems called runners. Where the runners hit the ground they take root and start a new plant.

This means that the pants are going to spread by sending out "runner" these are roots that will spread everywhere and then more of that plant will grow from them.

Most freshwater "grasses" do this like dwarf sags. They grow in a bunch then they send a runner out in one direction and after about 3-4in it forms a root and begins to grow a second bunch.

This is good and bad. If it gets too overgrown and you try to pull out 1 bunch you end up pulling out 6-7 if you don't cut the runners.
