Re: Bamboo

After my "lesson" from a local horticulturist at local Oriental Garden Supply
store, I can actually state that this is how grasses and bamboos grow-- that
the growth is from the outside.  I see this in all my grasses as well-- it is
particularly true for my Zebra Grass.  This creature looks like Jack's Bean
Stalk this year-- In the last week it has grown approximately an inch a day.
I seem to recall in years past that it did not grow considerably until the
ground was warmer.  It's taken off this year-- needs dividing badly.

 I cant stand how after years there is a hole in the
middle, although by the end of the season, you can't
see it, I know it is there! LOL! Going to try to plant
some of the one I am digging up in the center of the
other one. Anyone know why it is doing this?
