Transplanting by burying the stalk
I've been asking around for a couple months about how to transplant bamboo. There's a ton of good info here, but a few old school farmers around here made an interesting suggestion. I haven't seen anything here along those lines, and it sounds too good to be true.
They related bamboo to planting sugar cane. They call it the "same thing". They suggested to dig up complete stalks with a root ball, plow a shallow trench, place the whole stalk in the trench, and cover all up with soil. Supposedly, new stalks will form at each node, and it will spread roots.
Is that even possible?
