Bamboo (chamadorea elegans)

Although a bamboo palm grows faster in bright indirect light, it still does well in medium light and even low light if you’re careful not to over-water.

Allow the top 1/3 of the soil of a bamboo palm to dry out before watering. These plants like barely moist but never soggy soil. Never allow a bamboo palm to sit in the excess water that drains from the pot. Do not use water that has passed through a softener because the high salt content damages the leaves. Leaf tips look pale in color and green leaves fall off an over-watered bamboo palm. New growth and leaf tips turn brown when a bamboo palm is under-watered. The confusing thing is that yellow leaves can develop when the plant is over or under- watered, so you need to check the soil as far down as you can to know if the plant needs water.

The beautiful compact Bamboo Palm, native to Mexico and Central America, is perfect for low light areas. Indoors, a Bamboo or Reed Palm, can reach a height of 5-7ft. and a width of 3-5ft. with multiple reed-like stems growing in clumps. There are about 10-15 fronds on each stem of a Bamboo Palm and each frond has 10-14 pinnate (feathery) dark green leaflets. The base of each stem of a Bamboo Palm is covered in a tan colored fiber that resembles bamboo. The graceful Bamboo Palm is much hardier than an Areca Palm and much less expensive than a Kentia Palm. NASA lists a Bamboo Palm as a clean air plant.

Some consider this plant poisonous, so I advise keeping it away from pets and children.

The spring and summer rains can be a very welcomed event for the palms and bamboo gardens of  the south Florida area
