Bamboo stalks are often shipped in a gel to keep them from drying out while they are in shipping. The gel is no longer needed, so you can wash it off and then place them in water. You can also remove anything that is keeping them bundled together as long as they will stay upright in their new container, perhaps with the help of some marbles.
