I guess I should have started a new thread for my own bamboo problems so ignor my post on "bamboo troubles" thread...just need to get the hang of how things work on this forum. I posted the following: Hi, I am a "newby" to the forum and have some problems with a 3 yr old black bamboo that we transplanted last year to a bigger pot (about 14" deep and 18" in diameter). We did not remove the bottom but there are drainage holes. The pot is sunk into the ground The leaves look quite anemic light green/to yellow and the tips are grey and brittle. It is an a northwest location and receives direct sunlight and is near our pond which tempers the hot summer sun but it is still quite sheltered being on the inside of the "L" shape of our house. Has great composted soil from our horses (the soil being composted at least 2 years). It is sprouting new canes but the leaves on those also look to be the same as the parent...Help please?
