Planting and care

Most bamboos are happiest in well-drained, highly organic soils. They need frequent, liberal watering, especially when getting established. Use mulch to help retain moisture. Gardeners need to exercise patience when taking on the bamboo challenge, because it takes several years (often 5 to 10) for bamboo to grow into the dense grove desired.

Requires a rich damp soil in a sheltered position and plenty of moisture in the growing season. Tolerates dry conditions. This is generally a very hardy species, tolerating temperatures down to about -20 degree c, but persistent cold springs make the plant lazy in sending up new canes. It dislikes prolonged exposure to hard frosts.

Germination usually takes place fairly quickly so long as the seed is of good quality, though it can take 3 - 6 months. Grow on in a lightly shaded place in the greenhouse until large enough to plant out.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Requires full sun. If grown in broken light or partial sun, the number of shoots per year will not be as high as if it were in full sun. Most bamboos are happiest in well-drained, highly organic soils. They need frequent,liberal watering, especially when getting established. A minimum of 20 degree Celcius. New bamboos can be fertilized with a balanced lawn or, especially, palm fertilizer. After the first year, high nitrogen formulas can be used. Iron supplements are beneficial.

Caring for Phyllostachys Sulphurea

  • You can thin the clump each year.
  • Avoid removing the newest culms unless they are growing awkwardly or into an unwelcome area.
  • The interesting thing about trimming bamboos is that it is done only once a year; at the very most a second trimming will be done a few days later, because the last shoots have still grown, but is generally sufficient.
  • Apart from modifying the stature of the plant, trimming also makes the foliage denser.
  • Weeding is only necessary during the first two years; afterward, the plant is sufficiently developed to prevent grass from growing.
  • Fallen leaves must be left on the ground as they keep it damp, and their decomposition enriches the soil.
  • This also prevents the growth of grass.
  • In order to control their spreading, the new shoots must be cut back as soon as they appear in unsuitable areas.

Typical uses of Phyllostachys Sulphurea

Special features:

Ornamental use:

  • Bamboos are so distinctively elegant that they rarely compete with other plants. Their delicate-looking leaves and culms make a pleasing contrast to most types of plants including shrubs, trees, grasses, flowering perennials and annuals.
