Planting and care
Phyllostachys Sulphurea care
Most bamboos are happiest in well-drained, highly organic soils. They need frequent, liberal watering, especially when getting established. Use mulch to help retain moisture. Gardeners need to exercise patience when taking on the bamboo challenge, because it takes several years (often 5 to 10) for bamboo to grow into the dense grove desired.
Requires a rich damp soil in a sheltered position and plenty of moisture in the growing season. Tolerates dry conditions. This is generally a very hardy species, tolerating temperatures down to about -20 degree c, but persistent cold springs make the plant lazy in sending up new canes. It dislikes prolonged exposure to hard frosts.
Germination usually takes place fairly quickly so long as the seed is of good quality, though it can take 3 - 6 months. Grow on in a lightly shaded place in the greenhouse until large enough to plant out.
|Sunlight||Requires full sun. If grown in broken light or partial sun, the number of shoots per year will not be as high as if it were in full sun.|
|Watering||They need frequent,liberal watering, especially when getting established.|
|Soil||Most bamboos are happiest in well-drained, highly organic soils.|
|Temperature||A minimum of 20 degree Celcius.|
|Fertilizer||New bamboos can be fertilized with a balanced lawn or, especially, palm fertilizer. After the first year, high nitrogen formulas can be used. Iron supplements are beneficial.|
