Help for my bamboo!!

Not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but here goes! I have a stalk of bamboo that I've had for MANY years. Now it is beginning to look pretty ragged. The stalk is a very pale shade of green. The leaves are almost white and brown at the tips. I haven't changed how I take care of it over the years....It still produces little off-shoots that start out looking healthy, the take on the look of the rest of the plant. Is the life cycle over for this plant or am I missing something?? Help!! Kelly Harrington
