What will make my bamboo grow better/faster?

Is there anything that I should consider fertilizing my new bamboo clump with? It is a small parcel package bought clump that is about 1 foot high? I would like it to sprout up this spring/summer.

All of my other bamboo is already quite established and gets about 12-20 ft tall.

I think it is moso basjoo.

Do you mean musa basjoo -- which is a hardy banana -- or Ph. pubescens, the bamboo commonly called "moso"?
