Division in spring as new growth commences. Divisions from the open ground do not transplant well, so will need careful treatment and nurturing under cover in pots until at least late spring. Division is best carried out in wet weather and small divisions will establish better than large clumps. Another report says that you can take large divisions from established clumps and transfer them straight to their permanent positions, misting or drenching them frequently until they are established.Basal cane cuttings in spring.

A very hardy bamboo, tolerating temperatures down to at least -20°c, though it dislikes exposure to hard frosts.. This species is notably resistant to honey fungus. Plants only flower at intervals of many years. When they do come into flower most of the plants energies are directed into producing seed and consequently the plant is severely weakened. They sometimes die after flowering, but if left alone they will usually recover though they will look very poorly for a few years. If fed with artificial NPK fertilizers at this time the plants are more likely to die. This specie is one of the earliest members of this genus to come into new growth in the spring.This is a good companion species to grow in a woodland because the plants are shallow rooted and do not compete with deep rooted trees.
