Mexican weeping bamboo grows fast, reaching 15 to 20 feet tall in a few years depending of course on growing conditions. Rate per year may be a little slow the first year and then increase with the next 3-4 years. It can be divided, with some work, using a shovel to separate out the clumps in late winter. It may be a few years before it will have grown enough for dividing.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
