Essex, United Kingdom
The bamboo that I inherited (and think is a phyllostachys) was looking a little worst for wear, being in a rather root-bound pot. I was advised at the GC to feed it liberally and when I did so, got these sprouts from the base. They don't however, look anything like bamboo. Are they bamboo shoots or are they some other plant that I have somehow got for free? If they aren't new shoots, what should I do to thicken the bamboo up?
