I transplanted some aurea i dug while in Florida no more than 2.5 months ago. The rootball wasn't to big and it had one shoot in the rootball. Today, while looking at it i noticed that the one shoot it had on it was about the same size but not dead.When i looked around the clump i saw another shoot starting to emerge. Is that possible or is my Grove of yellow groove justgetting in the way. The grove of yellow groove is about 10 feet away. I didn't think a newly transplanted bamboo could produce shoots that quickly but i didn't think bamboos would send a lone shoot that far from the main grove. It looks to me like an aurea shoot because it is on the far side of the patch from the yellow groove.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I planted a bunch of Golden Bamboo I purchased from southern Arkansas this spring. Each rhizome had several growth buds visible when I planted them. I have new shoots already form two different rhizomes. I also have two canes that were already started when I planted that are growing. I say that it is possible for your aurea to send new shoots this soon.
