How to plant bamboo

How to plant bamboo in a pot:

It is perfectly possible to plant bamboo in a pot, but there are some factors that need to be taken into account. On the one hand, we must consider that bamboo is a plant that occupies a large amount of volume underground, so it is advisable to choose large pots for it.

If you are going to have your pot outdoors, it is better that you use a resin pot or some very resistant material, since ceramic ones can end up breaking due to the great force of the bamboo roots.

  • Before sowing your bamboo seeds, soak them overnight in clean water.

  • Always sow during spring, and use a substrate rich in peat and fertilized, if possible, with organic and ecological fertilizer. (Humus or Coposta)

  • If you live in a very hot area, you can plant in autumn, to spare the young plant the worst of the summer. The most common germination period is between 10 and 25 days.

  • Moisten the soil after sowing, although without waterlogging.

  • Put the pot somewhere shady.

  • Prepare the soil with some well-mixed natural fertilizer.

  • Make a hole in the center of the pot a few centimeters deep.

  • First make sure the pot has good drainage.

How to plant bamboo in soil or land:

If you want to plant bamboo in the ground, the dates are the same as for planting in a pot: spring or autumn if your climate is very hot. Depending on the climate, outdoors or on the ground

  • Steps to plant bamboo in soil

  • Choose an area of ​​the land with shade or semi-shade.

  • Prepare the soil by stirring and aerating it, to then sow your previously sunny and soaked seeds about 3 cm deep.

  • Leave a space of at least 1 meter between each seed.

  • It may also be a good idea to use sheet metal or cement barriers around the perimeter where you don't want their rhizomes to emerge. It is a plant with an enormous capacity for extension,

Bamboo care:
