Fargesia robusta, as the species name implies, is one of the more robust growing Fargesia bamboos. Although variable it is typically upright and tall, withstanding more exposure than many and has a tight, non-invasive clumping habit. It is one of the earliest bamboos to break soil in spring – an event much heralded in bamboo growing circles! – and the persistent white culm sheaths contrast beautifully with the dark green canes to give what is often described as a chequerboard effect. The form ‘Campbell’ is particularly upright and robust in character – suited perfectly to screening and hedging.

GENERAL CARE

Palm trees are one of the most popular choices for indoor plants to grow. They provide the majestic beauty of a tropical garden and the ease of care. The less mature palms can be used as a desk plant for a small office and even in bathrooms of some homes. 

An inevitable problem encountered by growing palms indoors is the amount of dust that builds up on the leaves over time. 

WATERING

The soil in the pots should be kept moist and never be allowed to dry out. During the summer months you will be watering as much as twice per week to maintain moisture levels, whereas in winter you should water sparingly.
