Growth of Moso Bamboo

Post by Thomas9666 » Tue Apr 09, 2013 11:32 am

Hi, I have been growing Moso Bamboo from seed for just over a year and have a probably 12" high group of shoots. How long will it be until I can plant the bamboo and rhizomes and have shoots with a larger diameter? This probably isn't the best way to word it...

Hate to be the bearer of bad news Thomas but... I had two Moso, both did well in the greenhouse sat in a tray of water. Out of the greenhouse it just isn't warm enough to get any decent growth, that winter saw off one of them and tbh the other doesn't look too well and wasn't really helped by the lack of a summer last year.
