I bought 6 bamboo plants and was excited about putting them in until I read the horror stories about them popping up anywhere and everywhere, I have now decided to put them in 18in x 18in strong plastic tubs to sit on the soil a concrete slab under them and the tub hidden by other plants. do you think this would be ok, can anybody see any problems doing this? many thanks.
