Newly shipped... DOA?
Hi I am new at growing Bamboo and recently bought myself some P. Nuda. I knew it could survive my cold climate. Anyway I finally got my bamboo but when it arrived it seemed rather... sick. The message I got with the shipment said not to alarmed by "some" defoliation. My bamboo looks hardly alive at all. I want to know if this is normal and if my little bamboo will make it. I thought I saw new growth but they don't seem to change. Attached are pics.
I have started pulling off dead leaves.
I am not sure what to do. Should I cut it back and hope for the best? Do you think new shoots should come up? OR am I just screwed?
