Bamboo Factoid

When bamboo plants flower, they may or may not produce viable seed. They generally will flower for 2 to 3 years and in many cases will die out after flowering. Most, if not all of the plants vigor is put into flowering with reduced leaf mass and shoot production. Generally bamboo plants are not grown by seed. Buyers should beware of offers to sell bamboo seed, especially seed from rare or unusual varieties.
