Dendrocalamus asper 'Betung Hitam' - the black colored variation of Dendrocalmus asper, is a very decorative and super rare Giant Bamboo, with glossy black stalks. In nature at its home base, this black giant bamboo is over 20 m high, of course, significantly less. The stalk diameter is up to 20 cm. Dendrocalamus asper requires full sun or medium shade. Minimum temperature, -5 C, therefore suitable for use as a container plant in our latitudes


Sprinkle bamboo seeds for 24h in lukewarm water (about 30 C).

For sowing,swell in water and place in a plastic pot.

Spread some seeds on the peat pot and cover thinly.

Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm we recommend a zip-lock bag of size 120 x 170 mm. Put enough tap water in the zip-lock bag with a few drops of universal fertilizer so that a few millimeters of water remain after the substrate has been absorbed.

Location: on the windowsill or in a miniature greenhouse partially shaded, during the day the temperatures should be around 27 - 32 C, at night a bit 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
