Not all bamboo soil is created equal

In what soil can the bamboo be planted?

Bamboo plants want a water-permeable, loose, sandy-loamy to humus-rich soil with a crumbly structure. In the case of wet, heavy clay soil at the planting site, the excavated soil should be mixed with compost, potting soil or special bamboo soil and horn shavings (€ 6.39 at Amazon *) added.

Bamboo soil - what makes the difference?

For bamboo plants, soil with a pH value below 7.0 is ideal. In addition, the nutrient delivery at the location must be well organized, because as an evergreen, hardy plant, they need a lot of energy.

Special bamboo soil or potting soil? Even with the same pH value, they not only differ in price. The advantages of a special bamboo soil:

  • ready-to-use substrate for all bamboo plants
  • Mixture of white peat, compost, stone flour and lava granules
  • stores moisture
  • prevents waterlogging due to the high clay mineral content
  • including special long-term bamboo fertilizer

Special bamboo soil is tailored to the needs of all types of bamboo. The fertilizer depot guarantees an optimal supply of nutrients for 2 to 3 months. Intense leaf green and healthy growth, even with pot and tub plants, are the visible success.

Tips & Tricks

Mix the bamboo soil yourself: Simply mix the extraction soil in a ratio of 1: 1 with special bamboo soil.
