Propagating Clumping Bamboo Video Part 2

Propagating Clumping Bamboo

Well this is the second in my series on propagating clumping bamboo.  Similar to my earlier video, it shows how quick and easy it is to take multiple divisions of your bamboo using a sawzall and shovel but is slightly longer.  In this particular video I took the divisions from my stand of Bambusa textilis “mutabilis”, and after stabilizing had about a 60% success rate.  As explained in the video, this is partly due to the fact that some of the divisions had not branched out, so this leaves the new division relying completely on the stored energy in the rhizomes as there is no leaf mass for photosynthesis.

Anyways, I hope this helps guide you to successfully propagating your clumping bamboo, and as always if you have any questions please leave a comment.
