Plant Profile Series



This is a great plant for an atrium or conservatory. Bamboos have reed-like stems with grassy looking leaves and may be green or variegated. In the right conditions, they are fast growing, reaching heights of 10 feet and taller, in some species much, much taller!. One variety we offer often in the summer is Alphonse Karr.

WATER: Bamboos must be kept moist during the summer months and barely moist during the winter.

LIGHT: They like a bright location but will not tolerate direct sunlight.

TEMPERATURE: Bamboos need to have a place with a good deal of air movement and an area that doesn't get too hot.

This specialty plant is seldom available. If ordered it may take several months to a year to find it.
