Medium and slightly acidic textured soil with good drainage is suitable for bamboo. Adding decayed cow manure to its soil creates ideal conditions when planting. Adding fertilizer early in the spring is enough to fertilize each year. The best fertilizer formula is 2-5-1, which is enough twice the first spring and the first summer. Plants planted in pots need more space every 4-5 years. Unchanging the pot will increase the volume of root mass and damage the plant.
The optical requirements of bamboos are different. Bamboos that withstand colder temperatures need less light and need a shady location and vice versa. But overall, depending on the weather conditions in our country, planting bamboos in a place that is protected from the afternoon sun is necessary. Bamboo planted in pots is better kept in a shady place.
In the first three years after planting, these plants need regular watering of 2–3 times a week, especially in summer. The roots of plants that have been planted for many years are deep and, like many grasses, resistant to drought. However, the foliage of dry land plants will lose their vitality. The water needs of plants planted in pots vary and require regular watering.
