I have divided my bamboo plant by cutting the roots off. Now it seems to be dying. What can I do to save it? Please help.

I don't understand what you mean by 'cutting the roots off'.

Bamboos can normally be propagated by dividing the root ball. That means cutting through the root ball vertically. Each of the resulting halves will have some stems and some roots. The replanted halves will need plenty of water until they are established. In the sort of weather we are having now, they will need a good drink every day.

Bamboos are generally tough plants and can normally take fairly rough treatment.
