Care & size guidance
Pleioblastus fortunei Variegata grows vigorously in rich soils and may become invasive, while in poor soils tends to have a clumping habit.
It performs very well in pots also, however every 3-4 years it will require repotting to refresh the soil that gets depleted of nutrients.
In the ground it’s recommended to contain the bamboo with bamboo control root barrier to prevent it from becoming invasive.
For a thick hedge or clump, water frequently and feed with high nitrogen slow release fertiliser twice a year.
The plant can be easily trimmed and scruffy canes can be cut to the ground in spring.
