Choose a spot for your bamboo that gets a fair amount of sun; either full sun for part of the day or filtered sun all day. Most bamboo types do well near water but dont thrive with wet roots especially when young. For most bamboos plant in a moderately acidic loamy soil. In very heavy soil digging organic material into the dirt where you are planting can make a big difference as can heavy mulching (which will attract earthworms who will loosen the soil for you). Depth and hole size will vary depending on the type of bamboo youre planting so following the instructions of your plant source is best. Generally though youll dig a hole to about the same depth as the root ball and break up the soil around it to allow the roots room to grow out. Water thoroughly once youve filled in around the root ball and keep the plant watered for the first several weeks taking care not to overwater (the ground should be moist but not wet a few minutes after watering). Too little water is better than too much water for newly transplanted bamboo but keep in mind that new bamboo in hot or windy weather will need more water. The best time to plant bamboo varies by area but spring is usually best as it will give the bamboo plant lots of time to establish itself before winter comes. However in mild climates most of the year works well and even in cooler climates nearly any warm part of the year will work so long as there is time for your bamboo to get established for winter.
And while a lot of people think that this type of flooring is available in only one color they immediately opt for the traditional bamboo type floors that exudes the natural color of bamboos. People should be made aware that there are in fact other colors to choose from. These bamboo materials are also available in different colors such as the dark amber which are actually stained bamboos or dyed.
Do not panic if your bamboo loses its leaves. If you feel disappointed because the lush foliage you hoped for is also subject to the falling of leaves. They are considered to be evergreen plants which grow and lose leaves over time. Not to worry though because the lost leaves will all be replaced. Planting bamboo can be very fulfilling if you are after the foliage. If grown right then they can be a very colorful and refreshing backdrop of any piece of property. If you are willing to take on all these then planting bamboo can be very satisfying and also profitable.
Not all category of the plant are suitable to grow indoor. Notable examples include extremely tall bamboo which would obviously be too big to grow inside your home. Although most tall species of bamboo can grow up to 50 feet in length the tallest one measured till date was a staggering 137 feet! It was found to be the Dendrocalmus giganteus in the Indian state of North Bengal. To this day this humongous plant type holds the record for being the largest bamboo ever. It had a massive culm of about 19 inches in diameter which was required to support the dizzying height. Additionally the canopy of a single culm was measured at an amazing 70 feet.
