Lewis bambooContainer and Indoor Bamboo


    
     Through research, we have found the species best suited for small
groves and container specimens for bamboo house plants. The larger the growing area or container you can provide for bamboo the better it will look and perform. If you are building a custom container keep in mind that bamboo is a swallow rooted grass. The width and length should be as large as you can accommodate and the depth should be around 18 inches. A custom built container 24 inches wide is great with the length 2 feet and longer.
      Since bamboo likes high ambient moisture levels, daily misting of bamboo house plants are recommended. Place the bamboo where it can get direct natural lighting if possible. Most indoor bamboo cannot retain all their foliage and some leaf drop is to be expected. Use a slow release fertilizer such as Osmocote. Follow fertilizing directions for the size container you have. A good potting soil, such as Miracle Grow, mixed with perlite for drainage works great. Just keep a check on the soil and allow it to dry out between watering. Bamboo likes water, but loves drainage.

Do not leave your containers of bamboo outside during the winter months and expect it to live. In cold climate zones you must move the container into a protected warm area during the cold winter months.
