Can I keep bamboo in the bucket?

Can you really keep bamboo in a bucket? The answer is “yes”. But there are special types for this purpose. Our article will definitely help you choose.

 Important properties to consider before buying bamboo in a bucket

One of the symbols of exotic culture is the use of bamboo. Transform parts of the room or the terrace with Asian charm into green areas with bamboo. Bamboo is a long-lived plant in the sweet grass family. It is the tallest grass in the world and there are more than 1,600 known varieties. The stems are both emptied and knobbly and its narrow, curvilinear leaves are about 10 cm long. Bamboo is a fast growing plant – the maximum value is 120 centimeters per day and its height reaches 40 m. In some countries paper is made from bamboo. It is also used as an ornamental plant in parks. This plant is most popular in Germany in private gardens and on terraces. If you want to experiment with bamboo in your garden or on your balcony, you should also know that “false bamboo” is often sold. The distant dragon tree species Dracaena sanderiana and Dracaena fragrans are known as “lucky bamboo”.

Propagation: Propagation takes place by dividing the root shoots. The suitable season for bamboo planting is during spring, but possibly also in summer and autumn. To plant bamboo at home, take a large pot and then spread the bamboo around it. The vessel should be as spacious as possible. It has to be rooted in the slightly damp soil. The soil should also be permeable. It is undoubtedly good when the soil is rich in nutrients. Help yourself with a homose earth. When buying the substrate, please ensure that you use high-quality soil. Another piece of advice: against yellow bamboo: no direct sunlight and no strongly chlorinated or fluorinated water. But if that is impossible, you can leave the water in a public container for a day. I wish you success!
