Caring for Golden Bamboo
- Choosing a bamboo for your container is quite similar to choosing a bamboo for your garden.
- You will need to know the amount of sunlight or shade your desired location will get.
- Most importantly, choose a bamboo that is cold hardy enough for your location.
- Is the bamboo for a privacy screen? If so, how tall or dense? The Bamboo Species section will list the hardiness, light tolerance and growth characteristics.
- Running Bamboos will generally give the best height. Because they are running bamboos, their roots are much more vigorous growing and will get root bound much sooner.
- Clumping Bamboos do not grow as aggressively and therefore will generally last much longer in pots before they get root bound and need repotting.
- Generally, most clumping Bamboos will not achieve the heights that a running bamboo would in a similar sized container.
