Containered bamboo spring growth spurt

Mesa, AZ(Zone 9b)

Last fall I bought 2 Phyllostachys dulcis (

They didn't grow much last year although they weathered the extreme cold snap here this winter fine. A few weeks ago I heavily fertilized them and I looked a few days ago and they are popping up nice thick culms!
