SKU: ds924735 Categories: ,

Buddha Belly Bamboo, scientifically known as Bambusa ventricosa, is an enchanting and visually striking bamboo species that captures attention with its unique and distinct characteristics. Originating from China, this extraordinary plant has gained popularity as an ornamental species due to its peculiar swollen inter-nodes, which resemble the round belly of the revered Buddha statue. The most captivating feature of the Buddha Belly Bamboo is its distinctively bulging inter-nodes that give the plant its iconic appearance. These swollen sections, usually found along the culm or stem, can reach remarkable proportions, resembling green globes stacked on top of each other. The round shape is accentuated by narrow grooves that encircle each segment, creating a mesmerizing pattern that adds to its overall charm.

With its ability to grow up to 35 feet tall, Buddha Belly Bamboo is a large and impressive plant that adds a touch of elegance to any landscape or garden. Its graceful arching culms and lush green foliage create a tropical ambiance, making it a sought-after choice for both indoor and outdoor decoration. The leaves are slender and delicate, forming a dense canopy that provides shade and privacy. This bamboo species is relatively low-maintenance, making it ideal for both experienced gardeners and beginners. It thrives in well-drained soil and requires moderate watering, allowing the topsoil to dry out between waterings. Buddha Belly Bamboo is tolerant of various light conditions, from full sun to partial shade, but it generally prefers morning sun in the desert.
