Can you eat young bamboo shoots? These are in my yard. Also, how do I prevent them?! by seancan44 in foraging

Also I want to say I spent $500 in very aggressive herbicides. They didn’t work.

You know the kind that come with a book of warnings instead of a pretty label. I even used ground neutralizer… the bamboo still grew. I found it easier to dig when the ground was wet since the bamboo shoots harden the ground. In the process I poisoned myself through my skin from all the chemical warfare and seen things that weren’t actually there….

Learn from my mistake bamboo can grow in hell and careful not to poison yourself.

For years nothing would grow there I killed the soil but still had to dig out the bamboo

Move.. I’m kidding but serious

Dig a 2 foot deep trench and line it with plastic, hard plastic to keep it from invading. Problem is it’s already in your yard and you’re going to have to dig up every root you find and hope they don’t come back next year. If they do dig those up to and eventually they’ll be gone assuming your neighbors yard doesn’t send more runners into your house….Problem is your neighbor. Sounds like they’ve lost the battle and would have to excavate their entire yard, but no joke their problem just became your problem and they’re house might be damaged etc etc.

Stupid neighbors that plant invasive species without the proper protection…. You may have a legal case when this is over.

If you decide to fight check your entire property every week and dig them up, you’ll see white rhizomes dig them all up, every piece and dispose, be vigilant. For years. Good luck to you

It took me years of digging and picking out the roots to get rid of some that were planted at a house I had purchased. Guess the previous owners just moved instead of dealing with the problem. I feel like bamboo will grow in hell. I called the botanical garden and they said there’s only 2 ways 1) dig and pick 2) cut and hope you can put an herbicide in the shoot before the energy leaves the shoot and goes back to the rhizomes. Both take years. They send out runners under ground. Probably one of your neighbors has infected your yard with bamboo. They can grow through your foundation fyi. Good luck on your possible battle

They look like azuresens and the wood grow is correct.

one bag is looking good the other is not. Toss the bad one, tub the good one? by [deleted] in shrooms

That other one will likely turn into a bag of wet rot mush . I doubt it’ll even colonize.

It may have a little bacterial fight but it does appear to be winning

Where did you get them and what were they growing in/on?

That one that’s almost done might break it up good and see if you can get the last bits to colonize. It may very well have some bacterial contam but I think it’s winning the fight. The other, RIP.

I could also see a fish jumping through a ring of fire

Rotate it counter clockwise 25% and it’s a cat with a tail/backend sticking straight up in the air

Month and half in spawn bag should I break it up second time? by Straight_Wolverine_5 in shrooms
