Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to grow Grey Hennon Bamboo. Now Grey Hennon Bamboo is one of the largest bamboos in the world. It can grow four feet across and get twenty, thirty, forty feet tall. So first thing you need to understand when you're grow it is that you want to put it in a spot where you can allow it to get big. It might take ten, twenty years to get huge; but you want to give it that space. And it is a clamping bamboo so it doesn't really run and take over which is nice. But you still want to keep it in an area where it's not going to take over. Now like other bamboo, Grey Bamboo is just a grass. It's related to the grass that grows in your garden or any other ornamental grass and so, it starts from a seed or you can start it from a root. Now as long as you have a piece of root and part of a stem you can grow another plant. Now the trick with bamboo is they can do part shade; but they really like hot heat, a sunny spot is best for them. And you want to have good drainage; they don't want to sit in a really mucky area. They want good compost that are potting soil but they'll grow right in clay or sand as well. And as long as you give it lots and lots of moisture when it's growing and keep it on the dry side; like in the winter when it's little more on the dormant side; you will find that your Grey Hennon Bamboo will grow to be huge and you will enjoy it in your garden for many years.
