Pseudosasa japonica is an extremely robust and vigorous bamboo produces arching canes of large, heavy, glossy, deep-green leaves that lend a lush, jungly and exotic air to their surroudings Arrow Bamboo is tolerant of most soil conditions, full sun to full shade and - unusual for a bamboo - even salt wind. The culm sheaths are persistent and, in time, can look a little scruffy and best removed. Its rhizomes can run so best planted with root barrier but is a valuable garden plant if growing conditions are not quite perfect enough for more demanding bamboo species. Must receive thorough and regular watering to establish and thrive.

GENERAL CARE

Bamboos can be grown almost anywhere, but avoid excessively windy locations. Many can be grown in sun or shade (sun is usually best for colour).Bamboos are generally shallow rooted and prefer a rich, moisture retentive, organic soil. 

PLANTING

Before planting out, the roots should be soaked in water for some time, and after planting it is important that the plant is watered well.

Hardy species of bamboo which were grown in pots can be planted anytime during the year, except in frozen ground.

Outdoor plants pot sizes
Outdoor plants pot sizes

With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.

Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.

Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.

Plants measurements
Plant measurements

For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.

All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Was a little dubious ordering a plant unseen, however I needn't have worried. My bamboo came on schedule, very well packaged and much better, bigger and healthier than I could have expected. Very happy customer and already recommended The Palm Centre to family and friends
