Dendrocalamus asper cv. 'Hitam' (Black Asper or Betung Hitam)

This black culmed giant produces great timber and boasts the fastest growth rate of all the big bamboos. It also produces beautiful sweet edible shoots. A must have if you've got the space.

Soak the bamboo seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water (approx. 30 C).

Use Jiffy peat swell pots for sowing, let them swell in water and put them in a plastic pot.

Spread some seeds on the peat well and cover thinly with the Jiffy substrate (about 2 mm).

Then place the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - for a pot size of 6 cm, a zip-lock bag size 120 x 170 mm is recommended. Put enough tap water in the zip-lock bag with a few drops of universal fertilizer so that a few mm of water remain after the substrate has been vacuumed up. 

Location: on the window sill or in a mini greenhouse in partial shade, during the day the temperatures should be around 27 - 32 C, at night a little lower at 25 - 28 C. 

The germination time for bamboo seeds is between 10 and 40 days, depending on the variety.

Price is for 10 seeds
