Bambusa vulgaris 'Wamin', Buddha Belly Bamboo (1.5m) is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.

This species is perfect for growing outdoors, or as a bonsai or indoor plant. However, one of its best advantages is its ability to adapt to a wide range of growing conditions.

Buddha Belly bamboo was named for the plant’s characteristic tendency to have bulging culms, or to ‘belly out’. In order to make it belly out, this plant needs to be stressed for water. Many people have made an art of carefully starving this bamboo in order to achieve maximum ‘belly’ results.

Soil for Potted Plants

Plants should be grown in fertilised potting mix. Make or buy a fertilised mix which consist of coco peat moss or coconut fiber (coir), vermiculite or perlite, compost and other ingredients. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.

Light Requirements

 All plants depend on light for their survival, and making sure your potted plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. For both indoor and outdoor containers, group plants with similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
