Thanks for your suggestions everyone.  I have bought a bigger pot so am going to take your advice to leave the bamboo as one plant and repot .  Must remember to water well and hopefully will eventually see some improvement to it. I don't think I fancy putting it into the garden now anyway after what I've been reading about it taking over so shall be keeping it in a pot.

Hi, I'm a newbie. My husband and  I bought a large golden bamboo from Homebase after bartering with the person in charge over the price. They wanted £40 for it and had it displayed with patio furniture but it looked as though it was potbound and dying so we took pity on it and eventually got it for £10.  Having removed it from its tiny pot we soaked the rootball but it is still very tight. We wanted to keep it in a large pot if possible as we might be moving house next year and would like to take it with us. Can anyone tell me if it would be better to split the plant into two as the stems look fairly green but through not being looked after in store the leaves are very dry and look as though they are ready to drop off. All suggestion welcome. Thanks
