Man, all these dire warnings about not letting your bamboo get out to run amok like some sort of green monster.

Brings to mind a sci-fi book by Ward Moore called
Greener than You Think where a super-fertilizer is negligently applied to some guys lawn, which then goes on to destroy the world.

We planted a couple of pots of Phyllostachys nigra in the far side of the yard about five years ago. The last two, it's started to really fill in. I always just assumed I might need to head it off with a mattock when it starts heading for places I don't want it. I guess everybody's going to tell me now that at five years is when it really starts to run for it.

I always wanted to put in some moso, but we don't have enough room for that. Plus you have to worry about ninja infestation with that.
