Actually just replied to someones thread about this earlier and until today i never really even thought about it. I know bamboo looks just like MJ and probably has similar heat sigs on FLIR. My questions are as follows: 1) The shoots. They're insane, thats really the only way to describe how fast they grow. Would the sharp, thin shoots go right through the roots of your plant without harming them? or tear 'em to peices? 2) Would any passing helicoptors (police or not) find anything unusual about a sea of green bamboo in upstate NY? seems to be ALOT more helicoptor traffic over my field since last season, but i could just be paranoid. Thanks for the feedback guys.
