Bambusa ventricosa - Buddha's Belly

Becomes a dwarf with swollen internodes when stressed, especially in pots. In the ground it reverts to a giant with zigzag culms and branches. In Florida, this species is rarely stressed and rarely produces bellies. It is always used as a large privacy screen. In drier climates, like SoCal, it is more likely to live up to it's common name, Buddha's Belly. See B.vulgaris Wamin if you want a belly-producing bamboo and you're in Florida. 55' tall, 3" diameter culms, Min temp 15 degrees F. Min USDA zone: 8b. Click to find your zone.
