potting new bamboo shoots
I have a patch of bamboo growing in my yard. This spring some new shoots have surfaced in a direction I don't want the bamboo to grow. Will the new shoots (about 1-2 feet tall now and about 1-3 feet from main clump) survive if I dig them up and put them in a large pot? I'm not sure the type of bamboo but half of it grows in a zig-zag pattern.
I'm a total bamboo novice so I apologize if this issue is has been beat to death.
