i had a bamboo division with a chopped culm and planted it right away. Its been about 2-3 months and im not expecting anything to show above ground this year but when i dug around it and stuff i saw no new root growth the roots were brown. The culm that was chopped is a lighter green then it started off was. i fear that it dried out of it was over watered. Right after planting we had inches of rain every week if not days. Should i wait until next spring or?

    Leave it alone and see what happens next year. It can take a while for new growth to appear. Bamboo like water, unless they sit submerged in it for weeks.
