Effmost of the variety of bamboos,
"Phyllostachys, Indocalamus, Sasa, Sasaella, etc." is said'leptomorphe'
ie tracer or invasive
, the plant produces, ricehomes.
The ricehome is like a big root about the size of a cane or 'bamboo stubble' that tends to run in your garden.
The rice usually evolves on the surface or up to 60cm deep, this one creates buds that will later give a cane, contrary to what we read here and there, bambunny bou does not mean non-tracing bamboo,here is the definition of cespiteux:
cespiteux: it is said of a plant that it is biliary when it does not spread on the surface, that it has a narrow development.

FARGESIA, Bambusa, Thamnocalamus, Drepanostachyum and Yushania 'Anceps'. produce a root system totally 'pachymorph', that is to say without rice.

On the other hand he existsyou have three varieties that are very choppy, but a leptomorphic system is not excluded. They are the family BORINDA, THAMNOCALAMUS and CHUSQUEA.
