Please Be Aware, This variety of clumping bamboo does not enjoy being kept in a small container. Though very well rooted and healthy, your new plant will appear a little rough and spindly when it arrives. This appearance is only temporary, once planted in-ground or in a larger pot, watered and fertilized, the plant should form new roots and send up fresh new shoots in a few months.
The growth rate of Yin Yang Yelow Stripe will vary greatly depending on soil type, sunlight, temperature and other factors. Canes are often trimmed to -44″ to facilitate shipping and reduce transpiration and travel stress.
When you receive your new Bamboo, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket with about a half inch of water in the bottom and moving it to a shady location. You can then add some mulch to the bucket to keep your plant standing upright. The mulch will also supply nutrients while in storage. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Bamboo.
Before leaving, Yin Yang Yelow Stripe Bamboo are inspected, watered, and pruned. Larger plants, generally those that ship in 8″ pots, will be topped to 36″ or 48″ overall, depending on the variety, if necessary, to facilitate shipping. Your new plants’ pot is then bagged to ensure that the soil stays in the pot and not loose in the box. Plants are tissue or kraft paper wrapped and generally secured in place with natural biodegradable peanuts.
