For bamboo enthusiasts who are not living in a sunny climate, how can they take care of their plants? A good place to start is by checking your local area for bamboo growers and manufacturers. Do they sell Bamboo products? If they do, find out more about the various species they produce and what exactly it takes to maintain them. Are there special products designed to deal with the specific problems specific to Bamboo? Make sure these products are available from your supplier – if not ask if they know of any.
Equal Balance Of Sunlight And Shade
Since Bamboo grows best in a warm and sunny environment, it makes sense to choose plants that have an equal balance of sunlight and shade. Some bamboo varieties are particularly adept at growing in areas where the climate is either very hot or very cold, while other plants will not do well in either of these conditions. It is therefore very important to pay close attention to the type of Bamboo plant you buy and ensure it does not have any negative traits that will affect its growth in your home environment.
The first concern in indoor plant care is getting Bamboo varieties that grow in direct sunlight. For this group of plants, the best choice are those that can tolerate partial shade, as these plants are less likely to be eaten away by seasonal changes. If you have good direct sunlight, and one of your Bamboo varieties is very suitable for this environment, then you can use this type of Bamboo plant in almost any environment.
Consider Using A Bamboo Variety That Can Grow In Partial Shade
For plants that cannot tolerate partial shade, you might consider using a Bamboo variety that can grow in partial shade by itself, without being planted in direct sunlight. This way you can provide Bamboo with the best of both worlds and ensure that it is well cared for without being subjected to too much heat or too much sun. When selecting Bamboo plants for your indoor plant care needs, keep a careful eye out for this type of Bamboo. There are some Bamboo varieties that do poorly in both types of conditions, and you do not want to select any of these if you do not have a plan to move your bamboo plants around.
Indoor Bamboo growing conditions should also be closely monitored to ensure they remain healthy and growing well. One of the best ways to ensure good indoor plant care is to use soil conditioners and fertilizers that do not contain harsh chemicals. These chemicals can have adverse effects on Bamboo plants and can inhibit growth, if too much is applied to the soil, and can often cause Bamboo plants to stop growing altogether. Many companies make products that neutralize chemicals, and as long as the soil conditioners are used correctly, then you should be fine.
Bamboo Plants Should Be Placed In The Southern Direction
You should also keep in mind the relationship between the different seasons and the type of Bamboo plant you choose. In general Bamboo plants should be placed in the southern direction during the summer months, towards the east or west during winter. For your indoor Bamboo plants, remember the following: for plants that are taller than three feet, and used frequently, place them towards the back of the room or towards the other side of the room during the hot, summer months. If the plants are shorter, and are used sparingly, place them towards the front or middle of the room during the cooler fall months.
When it comes to Bamboo plants, there is one more thing to think about: the position of your potted plants. If you are growing Bamboo plants indoors, be sure to place them far enough away from windows so they do not get direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can dry out the soil and affect the health of your plants. Indirect light from a window on the other hand can be equally as harmful to your lucky bamboo plant.
With these tips in mind, you should be ready to take advantage of the many positive benefits offered by bamboo and use Feng Shui to help grow your lucky bamboo garden. Just be sure to keep the following tips in mind: water every day; avoid standing water; keep the soil moist; don’t over water; put the plant in a location facing the window; put the bamboo in a location where direct sunlight will not be a problem; and keep your lucky bamboo in a spot that receives indirect sunlight at all times. These easy steps will help make your Feng Shui bamboo grower a happy camper!
