    would it be possible to cut the top part of a regular bamboo(not lucky bamboo) and grow it? do roots grow from the cut part?

    Not normally. I have heard that if you lay the bamboo down, roots will sprout at the "rings". I have not tried it though. keep in mind that bamboo is considered to be a grass.

    We accidentally tried it with Gigantia.

    We built a retaining wall of approx 2'-3' cut sections to hold a small mound back, MOST OF THEM SPROUTED.

    We were not trying to make new Giants and had to quickly remove them to evoid having way too much Bamboo.

    I'd say its easy, at least here any way.

    can they be grown inside in a pot? because form what ive heard, they grow like a weed and may damage the foundation of houses. im not too worried about my house, but im worried about my neighbor's...(though i dont like them too much, as they have a FILLED POND with running water, even with all the mosquitos and the west nile virus thing going on...)

    Ok try to bare with my spelling. We have a Buda's Belly bamboo in a 30" pot on our back patio. It has been about 20yrs or so in that local so I would say; You can Probably grow Bamboo in pots.
    What did you feed it?

    Whether or not they are invasive depends on the species. Some species, such as the black bamboo Phyllostachys nigra form quite small clumps and would be good for pots and should not invade your neighbour. Some other species spread very quickly and you will need a JCB to remove them after a few years! So I would recommend you do some research into the different species available.

    We have a Buda's Belly bamboo[/QUOTE]

    I grow a plant with that common name--Jatropha podagrica. But it's not a bamboo...must be a diff. plant.

    Does anyone have a bamboo cutting they'd be willing to trade? I'm not picky about what kind.. as long as it's bamboo (not "lucky bamboo") and is a vigorous grower [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
