That's fascinating! I've seen ornamental grasses do this before. I wonder if you should add more soil? I don't have much experience with seedlings.

Are you certain it's moso?

That has happened with my moso seedlings quite a few time and the reason is since the shoot generation node at the bottom was probably damaged, it will try to adapt, and create shooting clumps higher up on the plant. All you need to do is put all those under moist soil so each of them can make roots, and I have been able to get a handful of plants off of 1 seed this way.

You will find that this only happens with the initial culm.
