Re: My first post. I need help.

Got it. I put systemic “BioAsvance Tree and Shrub Protect and Feed “ throughout the grove and we had a lot of rain lately that helped it sink into the soil. I will start to cut out the culms that are black and missing color. I usually get full size culms (approx 2-2.5”) but this season I’m getting a...

Re: My first post. I need help.

I checked. Did not see a groove between the branches on a Culm. Is that a symptom for something?

Re: My first post. I need help.

I’ll update my location. I’m in Oceanside Ca. 30 miles north of San Diego. The overall grove is 20 years old! Started with 4 stalks and have pruned approx 50 stalks a year once it started getting crowded.

Re: My first post. I need help.

Oh gosh!!! I have a good relationship with neighbors in the back. So I think poisoning may be low risk. I also have very sandy soil, so I’m hoping soggy soil isn’t part of the problem. Ill thin out all the mis colored stalks. What would you recommend I use the treat the possible fungus? Thanks. Also...

Re: My first post. I need help.

Could it also be the time of year here in San Diego? Not very cold at night but it does get into the 40s at night. Maybe the shoots this early in the season are subject to aborting?

Re: My first post. I need help.

Thanks for reply Brad. Almost all the new shoots are aborting. I put a lot of new mulch on a couple times a year so I think the soil is full of nutrients. Any reason for the shoots aborting?

Thank

My first post. I need help.

I attached a picture of what is happening to my bamboo. Not sure what kind I have but the grove is at least 15 years old. My new growth is swarmed with the white stuff and the tip is shrunken and looks dead. Any advice on how to treat is most welcome.

Thank you. George.
