Common name:
Moso bamboo


Minimum temperature:
-20 degC

The largest bamboo outside the tropics, with stems up to 25 cm in diameter and 28 meters high. The species is originally from China and Taiwan, and is known for it’s edible shoots and the use of the fiber in the textile industry. The bamboo is hardy up to -20 degC, although some damage can occur during the winter. Because the plant easily recovers in the spring, it is a very suitable plant to grow in the garden. In most gardens the stems will not reach a height of 28 meters, but will still be a very beautiful and decorative bamboo of considerable size. A sunny spot would be ideal, and give the bamboo plenty of water.

Sowing description:
Soak the seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water, and sow them superficially (the seeds should still be visible) in sowing mixture. Germination at a day temperature of 20-25 degC, and preferably a bit lower during the night. The soil can be covered with plastic foil or glass, and should every now and then be sprayed with water in order to keep it lightly moist. Germination is very irregular, it can take two weeks, but also a few months. Give young plants as much light as possible.

Zaden ontvangen. helaas na zelfs meer dan een maand te wachten is er geen enkele moso ontkiemd. Een aantal begonnen zelfs te schimmelen en zacht te worden. Zeer jammer. De andere (niet-bamboe) zaden zijn wel gelukt.

De 1e reuzebamboe is na een 3-tal weken al boven de aarde komen piepen!
Prachtig scheutje van ong. 1 cm
