Limited amounts of very hot manures like chicken are OK if used with care.If you use metal feed troughs, make sure they have adequate drainage and use only very hardy plants.

This will provide a nutrient boost and improve the drainage in the soil around the bamboo roots.Many tropical bamboo species die at or near freezing temperatures, while some of the hardier temperate bamboos can survive temperatures as low as 29 C (20 F).

Feel free to contact us to discuss details about your project.A mutant bamboo plant flowering at a noninteger multiple of its population's flowering interval would release its seeds alone, and would not enjoy the benefits of collective flowering (such as protection from predators).
