Probably the toughest of the tropical clumping bamboos, Buddha s Belly is known for it utility as well as its adaptability. Bamboo is technically a grass which grows more rapidly than any other plant on the planet. New bamboo shoots can grow as much as 3 feet in one day. Bamboo has been most widely used for shelter, food, paper, jewelry, and clothes in Asia.

Bamboo can be divided into two main categories: clumpers and runners. Clumpers tend to send out new shoots within a couple of feet of the clump each year. Runners, however, send out new shoots much farther from the original clump.

Common name: Buddha Belly Bamboo
Color: Bamboo does not produce any flowers. Has a bright green trunk with ringed swellings.
Height: 15 ft to 55 ft
Difficulty level: easy

Planting & Care
Under harsh conditions, this bamboo develops short swollen internodes - hence its name Buddha s Belly . Under normal QLD growing conditions, the ventricosa will generally only produce about half of its shoots with the short, swollen internodes and the rest straight as usual. Though this does very much depend on conditions.

The ventricosa is very fast growing with a vigorous growth habit. Great for privacy screening on acreage, windbreaks or erosion control.

Sunlight: The plant prefers full sun.

Soil: Well-drained soil.

Water: The soil should be kept moist but not wet. Water regularly, when top 3 in. of soil is dry.Take care not to over water though - excess watering can cause excess leaf drop. Well-established bamboos are rather tolerant of flooding, but newly planted bamboos can suffer from too much as well as too little water.

Temprature: Optimal temperature required is 22ÂșC.

Fertilizer: Should be fed regularly with a high-nitrogen food.

  • New culms that grow taller need to be trimmed to keep the plant in shape.
  • You can control the height of any culm by cutting just above the node.
  • It is advisable to plant them in a large pot because they can die if the root ball is allowed to dry out.

Ornamental use:
  • Bamboo Buddha Belly can be grown as a grove or as an ascent plant.
  • It could also be grown to form a screen.
  • Due to the nature of the bellying , this bamboo is one of the best bamboos for bonsais.
  • By pruning the tops of the culms and restricting its growth, the swollen internodes become more predominant.
