has anyone transplanted running bamboo? I have taken it from a border to put in pots, and protected roots, planted quickly made sure no air pockets fed and watered, but it looks faded and not good. does it take a while to look better, or is it dying?



Down to the amount of root you got with it, really - try cutting it down to about 4 inches, this will allow it to spend more energy generating roots instead of supporting topgrowth.
