Yep, it's most definately Inverness monster (the damage not the plant). I find it remarkable, with half of the internode eaten away, it still branches out.

Just my thoughts, and it may not matter one way or the other, but I'd put a splint of some sort on that branch where it's chewed through. At least something to keep it from folding over as the branch puts on weight. I might also fill/plug the entry into the culm there first, but I'm not sure about moisture being trapped or things like that.

I appreciate the input, I would never have considered doing that. But there are branches and leaves below the damage that will sustain the culm. There are three culms which developed late last year and lost their branches and leaves during the winter and they haven't produced any to replace them, yet. In hindsight, although our weather is nowhere near as harsh as parts of North America, I do wonder if I shouldn't have went for Ph. aureosulcata and Ph. bissettii to create my groves rather than Ph. vivax and Ph. dulcis. I was enticed by the thought of "huge" culms. I had a five litre pot of Ph. aureosulcata 'Spectabilis' for a year in a planter and two in the ground and it measured over three foot across when I dug it up, a huge rootball, and it was nice and upright and could handle the wind better than Ph. vivax. It's not called a "Rootball" is it?

If I hadn't got my research awry I would have planted Ph. vivax lower down as runners travel quicker uphill. Now I am mulching heavier on the lower side to encourage the rhizomes.
