AED 95.00

Bambusa Ventricosa, also known as Buddha’s Belly Bamboo, is a fast-growing, tropical bamboo species native to Southeast Asia. It is known for its distinctive, swollen stems that resemble the belly of a Buddha statue, hence its common name. This bamboo species is commonly used for landscaping, as a privacy screen, or as a unique container plant.

Plant Care:

  1. Light: Bambusa Ventricosa prefers full sun to partial shade and will grow best in bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves and slow growth.
  2. Water: This bamboo species requires moist soil and should be watered regularly, especially during dry periods. Over-watering can cause root rot and kill the plant, so it is important to ensure good drainage.
  3. Soil: Bambusa Ventricosa prefers fertile, well-draining soil with a neutral to slightly acidic pH. It can also tolerate slightly alkaline soil.
  4. Hardiness: This bamboo species is hardy in USDA zones 9-11, where it can be grown outdoors year-round. In cooler climates, it can be grown as a container plant or in a greenhouse or conservatory.
  5. Pruning: Regular pruning can help control the plant’s height and spread and maintain its desired shape. Old, yellowing leaves should be removed to keep the plant looking its best.

Note: Bambusa Ventricosa can be invasive in some areas and may need to be kept in check through regular pruning. In addition, its leaves and stems are sharp, so care should be taken when handling the plant.
