bamboo propagation

I have some timber bamboo (vivax) that I would like to propagate. Being a
"clump"type bamboo instead of a runner, it does not seem to lend itself to
root cuttings. Presently I wait for a sprout and then separate it ,but at
this rate I will never get a bamboo grove. Am I using a wrong root hormone?
can one "air root"? Any body know about small scale tissue culture
possibility?
