Growing bamboo in containers is a good way to control the plants, which can grow invasively when planted in the garden. But even confined in containers, bamboo plants can get large, requiring re-potting every year or so. The clumping varieties will need re-potting less often than those that run. Feed bamboo with a diluted fertilizer weekly during the growing season, cutting back to monthly in the winter.
Light Exposure: Bright indirect lighting or moderate window sunlight
