Free Buddhas belly in northern NJ

Hey all,

A few years ago I bought a bunch of bamboo for growing in pots.

One is a Buddha's Belly that I can not treat properly. It is growing, and actually doing fairly well, but it is sensitive and really needs to be indoors all the time. I bring it in for winter, but left it out too long last year, so it got frozen. It has spent this year recovering.

It really needs someone with tall ceilings or a greenhouse where temps do not go below 40f. Below that it starts to fade and die back.

Right now it is in a large ceramic pot. It is about 6-7 feet tall, plus the height of the pot. I trim my bamboo each fall when I bring them in.

The plant is free, I'll sell the pot if you want it, but I have a use for it.

Hi, thanks for the bump. It is still available, but with the weather coming up in Bergen County I do not know how long it will last. I cannot bring it in this year.

Well, it made it through the hurricane. I do not know how low it can go, the next few nights will be very borderline for it.

I am also going to give away two other bamboos, I just do not have the room. I will post separate messages for those
