Default Crypts go dormant? and grow?

I've had a great little crypt wenditti, grew big for 8 months, then
stopped... leaves started looking tattered, and edges started curling, then
stopped growing...

Pruned a little here and there over 3 or 4 weeks, but couldn't "kick" it to
grow anymore.... so I left it...

Yesterday, I noticed that I've got 12-15 runners, rhyzomes, whatever,
growing about 6 inches from the parent plant... I left them, and will
probably allow them to come in as they would, but I wondered, do they grow
rhyzomes while in dormancy? Or did some pruning spur the growth?
