Dear Bamboo experts!

I made a rookie mistake by ordering 6 young plants online:

( Fargesia robusta 'Campbell', Zebra Bambus 40-60 cm, /2-3 Liter )

I was little shocked and disappointed how small and thin it looked.

It doesn't cover any density which I had hoped, for our balcony....

Would it be advisable to order additional 4x 80-100 /3-5 Liter and plant these outside and the younger ones in the middle?

ie. 2 Containers ... two large bamboos on the outside and 3 young plants in the middle?

or Should I give these young plants a chance and let them grow ... over the summer?
I am so not keen on seeing my half naked not so attractive neighbour across the balcony :roll:

ps. I previously ordered Fargesia rufa for my other balcony .. amazing and bushy but they tend to droop a little which is why I ended up
buying the upright Robusta.

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
