bamboo division help?

i got a division of hardy bamboo back in may i planted and its remained the same. the division had a chopped culm that was about 1/2 inch in diameter and i was messing around with the top layer to see if things were ok. Theres a tiny tiny shoot emerging its really thin and small. The plant looks to of put out no new roots. Will the plant make it if that culm emerges? Also should i maybe fertilize with high nitrogen to maybe kick it off. the soil is not so great even though we worked it and all. Im also worried i over watered because the top of the soil is dry but down below its pretty moist. So I'm backing off on the water but it seems like every week it rains a few. Thanks any thing is helpful.
