Make sure the pot is not top heavy. Picking up a fallen pot in the middle of a storm is not fun, especially not after the 10th time. When it falls it damages the top growth and can damage the roots. I find troughs work best...and in the ground better. I would not bother in the ground if you want to move it next year.
I put a golden bamboo in the ground earlier this year, added lots of chicken pellets and bone meal and it has doubled in size, with lots of strong 6ft tall canes.
