Q.Will bamboo off cuts sprout?

Zone Auckland New Zealand | Bamboo added on April 28, 2015 | Answered

I have been trying to kill bamboo by cutting the shoots and painting undiluted amitrole on the storks. My question is: If I leave the cut off bamboo shoots in another part of the garden to decompose, will they sprout and start to grow in that area? Thanks.

As long as your bamboo cuttings do not contain the rhizomes/roots you should be fine.
