Japan bamboo (my country said this bamboo) is really good for a fence, this bamboo can grow very close each other so there is no space between them. people or big animals really difficult through them. I try to cultivate this kind bamboo by just cut the bamboo tree and just plugged on the ground, they will grow the leaf right on the bamboo segment. The segment also should be on the ground to grow the roots, the upper segment will grow leaves. So it very easy to cultivate bamboo, if you plant on the rainy season you can plugged directly in the field but if the water is not enough you can plant first in polybag or in your garden.
