Planting and care

Plants prefer a near-neutral pH range of 5.5 - 7.0. A pH of 6.5 is just about right for most home gardens (slightly acidic to neutral). An accurate soil test will tell you where your pH currently stands. Acidic (sour) soil is counteracted by applying finely ground limestone, and alkaline (sweet) soil is treated with ground sulphur.

Full sun to part shadeMoist, well drained soil. Keep well mulched.Water Buddha belly plants in containers deeply about once or twice each week, and allow their soil to dry out between watering sessions.Water outdoor Buddha belly plants about once each week.Optimal temperature required is 22 C.Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Bambusa Ventricosa

  • The plant stays small and produces swollen internodes when grown in a small container and supplied with little moisture and nutrient.
  • 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.
