I have some bamboo growing here. Running type, which I like. No problems....I got a bushhog. I think the biggest bamboo is of the clump type. I had some clump before at another place and that stuff is uncontrollable once it gets pretty big...need a dozer. Bamboo does not like wet places...I heard it's best to plant it in a spot where you could grow corn...same preferences as to soil. My bamboo originally came from the side of a train track heading north out of Gulfport. It is not getting big here cuz I have it planted under some pine trees. I think I am going to try to use the cutting method to grow some more....great videos !
