To divide bamboo, take the clump from the edge of an existing grove in spring before shoots appear. Use a sharp spade to cut straight down in a ring around the clump, being sure to cut through the two or more tough, woody rhizomes connecting it to the rest of the grove. Then simply pop it up and transplant.
