Bamboo Care

All of our bamboo is of the clumping variety and will not travel

Bamboo for the most part is a tolerant plant as long as it gets water, food and a place to grow. 

New plantings should be watered daily for the first couple of weeks and after, when they dry out. Bamboo will take lots of water but will not tolerate wet soggy roots. So good drainage is important.  Bamboo will tolerate a wide variety of soils but prefer a slightly acidic ph.

When planting dig a hole twice as wide and  just a little deeper than the pot. Water well and fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer once or twice during the growing season.
