I have been cutting rhizomes from a friend's yard, and replanting them in my backyard. I know it's not growing (rainy) season right now, so I water every day -- not too much.
One stalk I cut (about 4 1/2 feet tall) is starting to look 'bruised' and sags in the middle, although the lower part is solid. Also, some of the chutes I've planted are turning brown and look like they're dying.
Is my bamboo sick? Or just going dormant for the winter season?
I can include pics if you would like to see.
