[Homestead] Bamboo question..(dumb)

This is one of those better safe than sorry questions..
A month or so ago, we cut/harvested some bamboo canes from my neighbor's
grove. The canes are 3 inches at the base and probably 40 feet tall.
Today, I cut the tops off the cane, basically halving the cane into 2 20
foot sections. I want to build some trellises such from the canes, BUT,
I had this thought...knowing how bamboo spreads...
If I bury the cane tops in the soil, there's no chance that it will
root, is there? It's been over a month since the canes were cut and
they are partially dry..surely they won't root, will they? Do I need to
pour concrete in coffee cans and put the canes in the concrete, or can I
just stick them in the ground?
