Hi, I have amazingly acquired some mature Rufa (10ft tall/ 1/2 culms) and a Japonica (10ft/ 0.75" culms. I divided a very small portion of each of the groves and immediately stuck them in 15G pots with top soil, nitrogen fertilizer and loads of water. 4-5 culms and their associated roots in each pot.

Should I do shorten the culms? The leaves on the Japonica are really starting to dry up and look very sad indeed.

If the leaves never unroll even when in shade and well-watered, then you probably do need to remove some. You can prune the culms, remove some branches, remove leaves, etc. You just want to make sure that remaining leaves are fully hydrated (not rolling).

If they're completely drying out, that's a worse sign I think.
