Superficial bamboo roots

Many years ago I planted a single bamboo shoot close to the bridge that connects the higher sides of the land on either side of the ancient creek that fills with rain water today. The number of bamboo shoots have multiplied many times over and it's always interesting to see the new ones coming up so fast. A few days ago I spotted a superficial root system coming out from the nodules of the new plants. I'm not sure what this means. Could it be that the bamboo is expecting higher than normal floods for the season?
