I purchased approx 1000 issued cultured clumping Bamboo varieties in Dec 13. The majority were plug and tube stock size. I re-potted the small plugs in 150mm pots and the tubes in 200mm pots using premium Debco quality potting soil. With the exception of one variety, I have had excellent results so far. The plants were not in a shade house etc, just protected in a well shaded environment over summer with quality water. 7 months on, most plants have re-shooted and growth has been strong and have settled in this winter period. The next couple of months I believe I will need to transfer to larger pots.
Does anyone have any experience with Tissue Culture bamboo stock? I have spoken to a couple of Bamboo growers and they have indicated they have had mixed results in early establishment. Am I naive to think that because they have established well and have seen rapid growth their longer term success (given good conditions) is not guaranteed? Thanks Paul
