Wrong item and it's over a month so even if it was this deal would still be valid

I was adding more plants to the thread to be helpful! :)

This plant is a thug. Expect to see shoots coming up 20 feet away after a few years.

Best potted in sunken in the ground inside a sturdy pot to reduce it spreading.

Exactly the situation I am currently in. They spout up 8ft virtually overnight!! It's a nightmare!!

Look for clumping rather than "running" variants otherwise it'll be all over your garden in no time.

I love bamboo, but it can be invasive. Don't plant it anywhere need a pond or it will be through the liner. Don't plant it near tarmac or it will grow straight through it also. I harvest mine to control its spread, and make really good bamboo canes from it.
When it sprouts its shoots [spears] in the spring they initially grow so fast, that you can virtually see it grow, sometimes a few inches in a day!

This one is a spreader rather than a cluming variety. (Pseudosasa japonica) Very nice plant though and makes a great screen once contained. I have many bamboo varieties the spreaders I plant in trugs. I buy the biggest trugs i can find cheaply, drill a few holes in the bottom for drainage put them in the ground then plant the bamboo in them. Stops the roots roaming and some have been in for nearly 10 years.

Great price, selling quickly. Only 2 left in Bedford.

Are you sure they're not Triffids?

For the uninitiated/unwary, the bamboo plant grows at a phenomenal rate and is considered a vegetative pest – unless yours happened to be the variety Pandas and Chinese Chop Suey [which means mixed leftovers – honest] Houses favour. For your £15, a screen/vegetative wall will the least of your worry should this beastie not be some stunted/”bonzai” variant other than being some nice little kiddo awaiting its moment of being spoilt to co-destruction.

In addition, all kinds of pests call this “shelter” home. You know, birds of a feather and all that. Above all else, it is not for suited to be an indoor plant and whatever attempts at stunting it via small pottery is no barrier to the beatie’s “expression”. You have been warned. A very good idea would be to give me half of £15 and you’ll then get to save £7.50 and the garden/house.

Picked up one of these - thanks OP

It will be kept in a pot so hopefully will be tamed!

Hi, can it be used as an indoor plant?
