The rhizome is the underground stems of the bamboo plant it is the Rhizomes which produce the culms. The rhizome is bulbous in its appearance with each individual segment of the rhizome tapering towards its end to form a neck which connects to its other segments. The rhizome has roots that emerge from its nodes and it is these roots that forage for food and nutrients from the soil. These nutrients are stored by the rhizomes and used in the plants periods of dormancy for new growth.
Another useful use of this plant is in the form of a natural dam. For instance if there is a small river or a creek whose flow you would like to slow down then consider putting it up in your property. To trim its root cluster you would have to use sharp instrument such as pruners or garden shears. A lawn mower would also keep it neatly trimmed. Due precautions need to be exercised while using these tools though as overdoing it could trigger bigger problem for you.
