Bamboo Palm Overview

It has a bushy habit, but its low humidity and low light requirements make it a popular choice for indoor growing. It is frost-tender, so keep this plant somewhere protected from freezing temperatures and only water when the top layer of soil has dried out for best results. The canes appear with brown fibres which fall away as the stems mature. This plant has earnt a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.
