I purchased these two Fargesia Scabrida 'Asian Wonder and Fargesia Nitida 'Great Wall' from b&q earlier today they cost cost me 6.98 for the two on the bogof deal. I originally went to buy soil but you know how it is. Both are very small in 1 litre pots. I've read that small divisions aren't advisable with any bamboo, but I thought I'd take a punt anyway. Any advice on getting them going? much appreciated as always.
I think he means that it's not advisable to buy small bamboo divisions.jacko wrote:they are way too small to be dividing them,just let them grow a few years before thinking of dividing.as for them being dwarf bamboos i would say medium heights of 12 to 16ft.pot on or put in the ground.
As long as you don't mind waiting some years then there's not much to worry about. I have 10 very small boos, most were purchased as 9cm plants on eBay. You might have to worry a little bit about the pots freezing solid for long periods of time in winter, I brought mine in to defrost for 24 hours. Make sure they're not in too small a pot so as not to restrict the rhizomes when they're growing.
