Bamboo as indoor plant

Posted by cathmint CT (My Page) on

I am looking for a clump forming tropical bamboo that could be used in a container indoors as a houseplant. I understand that it shouldn't be a bamgoo that requires cold dormancy as that could result in excessive leaf drop. The room in which it will be placed is south facing and has 8' ceilings. Any advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Maybe Bambusa multiplex 'Tiny Fern' or Fernleaf.

RE: Bamboo as indoor plant

I'm unaware of any bamboo, clumping or running, that need cold dormancy to prevent leaf drop. Where did you find that info?

Same question, different types

I have the same question but different species. Rather than making a new post, Ill tag along in this post.

I have red margin bamboo and b. gracillis in containers on my patio. I would like to bring one of them indoors for an indoor plant. Which will do better indoors? The ceiling in my house where the plant would be is about 16 feet. It gets limited lighting.
