bamboo veg. propagation
Posted: Sun Dec 23, 2012 5:48 pm
I was watching a video about the bamboo industry comming along in India and it looked like they were propagating from cut culms. they would cut a culm into 7 or 8 parts lay it sideways in the ground. cover it and wait for it to pop up. after it had a bit of leaves on it they dug it up cut the old culm away and planted the shoot with a nice root ball on it. I wasnt aware you could do it this way and if you can I would like to know more. anyone ever tried this? anything special that needs to be done with the old culms before there put in the ground? seems like a good way to propagate without having to dig heavy tough root balls.
