Planting & Care

Soil: Requires a rich damp soil.
Water: Bamboo should be watered thoroughly, two to four times per week from late spring through fall, or as needed.
Temprature: A very hardy plant, tolerating temperatures down to at least -7°c, but it dislikes prolonged exposure to hard frosts.
Fertilizer: Fertilizer should be applied to correlate with the two main growth phases bamboo goes through in a season. The first application should be done in early spring, Feb. though March, as the bamboo is gathering energy to produce new shoots. The second should be applied in mid summer as the roots strengthen, and develop small buds in preparation for the following flush of new shoots.
- When a bamboo is dehydrated, the leaves will curl upward to prevent further water loss.
- Water the bamboo thoroughly if you notice these symptoms.
