Bamboos may be further qualified by the number of canes/culms/shoots which can be expected for a given size of specified plant.
The number of canes/culms/shoots which, dependent on growth habit and size, may be specified is 2, 3/4, 5/7 or 8/12.
Container grown bamboos
The number of canes/culms/shoots occurring from ground level is specified below:
|Typical species||Container size||No of shoots|
|Pleioblastus humilis Var. pumilus||C2||3/5|
|Fargesia murieliae ‘Simba’||C5||5/7|
For larger container sizes, the OVERALL HEIGHT and the NUMBER OF BREAKS will increase in proportion of the habit and vigour of the plant.
