Edible, Easy-Growing & Non-Invasive Bamboo
Why Edible Bamboo Plants?
Known as the Male Bamboo or Calcutta Bamboo, the Edible Bamboo Plant is valued for its incredibly fast growth and unique form. And since it's perfect for growing and preparing a one-of-a-kind culinary treat, it lives up to its name!
Simply pick your young bamboo shoots, bring them indoors to boil and prepare, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Edible Bamboo has a delectable flavor unlike any other and is perfect for adding to a number of recipes.
Even better? It's non-aggressive and non-invasive. It won't run all over your yard and it's ideal for small spaces, from urban patios to containers on your porch. That means you can experience the delight of home-grown bamboo without hassle or fuss.
Plus, it's tolerant of cold and heat. This is perhaps the easiest-to-grow bamboo variety available. It's even tolerant of harsh sunlight, heat and drought conditions. Unlike other needy varieties, it won't shrivel up and die back when faced with tough landscape issues.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Have has the bamboo for about a month. It is now starting to turn green and grow some.
Bamboo is doing great has filled in the large container well and quickly. Looking forward to some color variation down the road.
i received these plants on time. I planted them and placed in my porch. They look green and healthy at the beginning but now they do not look healthy and some of leaves turned yellowish. I am not sure they are supposed be this way during winter or they are having problems.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Edible Bamboo in an area that's protected from high winds and receives full to partial sunlight (anywhere from 4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily).
The Edible Bamboo will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well-draining.
Once you've selected your location, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your Edible Bamboo Plant's root ball, plant your Bamboo and backfill the soil.
2. Watering: Depending on your climate, water your Bamboo at least twice weekly. If you're not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down.
3. Fertilizing: Early every spring and fall, feed your Edible Bamboo with a slow-release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen.
