True Buddhas Belly

Bambusa ventricosa has gorgeous bulging culms and is a great stand alone ornamental, which can be contained and cut to height. Looks great pruned to just one culm/pole, or even a few. Stressing it every now and then with little water, makes the bulges grow bigger.

In the ground can grow up to 8m, but in a pot can be pruned and maintanted down to just 1-2m.

Poles are ideal for craft, or temporary table ware. i.e. cut poles for bowls or cups. 

If planting near to fences, root barrier is recommended.
