Transplanting Moso...

Posted by casey_wa zone 8 (My Page) on

I have a large pot of 3 year old moso (thank you to kudzu9) that is now about 4 feet tall. There are about four or five distinct clumps with about 20 stems for each clump. I think it is about time to transplant to the ground...but when should I do this? I heard that transplanting moso is tricky and wonder if I should just plant as it is out of the pot without disturbing the culm/rhiz? Any thoughts? Will post photo if needed. Thanks, Casey

Hi, Casey-
Glad to hear it's doing well. I put mine in the ground last summer and they're doing fine. I'd suggest you do it now before it gets any later in the year so that the rhizomes get a chance to dig in before winter. Pick a cloudy day and make sure you keep it well-watered in the coming months. Good luck.

Will do ...I babied the plant well. Will get into the ground soon.
