bamboo plant care

Well, the first thing I want to say is that I’m sort of disappointed that you’re interested in artificial bamboo plants over real bamboo plants. I understand though, it isn’t always practical to have real bamboo indoors (or out for that matter).

Ok, so I'm not bamboo, I'm a ficus. I still look pretty good though eh?

Artificial bamboo is cool because it gives the allure of real bamboo without having to research, plant and take care of real bamboo. Growing bamboo indoors can also be a challenge for anyone and I would actually go as far as to say that getting artificial bamboo is a wiser choice...Especially for those with no bamboo growing experience.

Now, let’s pretend I didn’t say that and move on to my artificial bamboo recommendations.

Before I begin though, let me say that as of yet I haven’t purchased an artificial bamboo plant. I did my research on the companies that make them and the quality of the plant and I’m listing them as such.

Also note that some of the following are affiliate links which means I will get a small commission if you decide to purchase any of them, but it doesn’t change the price for you- it does help me keep writing and creating content though! I only recommend products that I think are “the best” and in this case, Nearly Natural seems to have won out as you’ll see below.

1. For black bamboo I would recommend Nearly Natural Black Bamboo Silk Tree. It’s appears to be quite stunning at 6.5 feet tall with black stalks. It also apparently has over 1700 silk leaves which help to make it look more real.

2. For bamboo with a golden/light brown stalk I would recommend Nearly Natural 5191 Big Bamboo Silk Tree, 7-Feet, Green. It’s 7 feet tall with light and dark bamboo leaves. I like this one because the leaf color is similar to real bamboo as some are yellowing and falling off.

3. My third recommendation is Nearly Natural Bambusa Bamboo . This is a five foot bamboo plant with very bright colors. It might be best for someone looking to brighten up a room.

Didn’t see one that fit your fancy? Well, you could attempt real bamboo, but before you do make sure you check out the bamboo plant care page to make sure you’re up to the work required. bamboo-308353_640
