I bought a large potted bamboo last summer and it was thriving untill i noticed today its dried out on most its shoots and lost its leaves. i removed it from the pot and planted it in the open soil. the compost from its pot seemed very moist. Am i doing the right thing to save it ??
It will do much better in the open soil and has a better chance of recovery there. it will produce new shoots from ground level, not the affected stems. Although shrub-like, bamboo is actually a grass.
