Brown leaves on my bambusa Lako.

I have a 1 year old Lako who gets full sun all day and plenty of water. I'm wondering if these brown leaves are from the cold winter we had this year or from me overwatering during the winter. I've got a watering line to my pot and it gets 5 minutes of water every other day. Any ideas?

It looks like normal leaf change-out. It's hard to over-water bamboo. The typical manifestation of over-watering is when the leaf tips turn brown, not when the whole leaf turns brown/tan. You may even be under-watering.
