The dwarf Buddha looks best as a single specimen plant. In addition, this plant’s growth is relatively slower than other bamboo species. Still, it will grow exponentially within the first year and reach maturity within three years with the right growing conditions. Dwarf Buddha bamboo does well with moderate fertilization and watering. It makes an excellent privacy screen thanks to its open, straight clump that makes a perfect screen.
The dwarf Buddha thrives in moist, well-drained, organically-rich, loamy soil with a pH range between 6.0 and 8.0. It is essential to water the plant moderately to prevent flooding, which could damage its roots. Fortunately, the plant is relatively drought-tolerant thanks to its defoliating nature when exposed to dry conditions. However, the dwarf Buddha is prone to attack by pests such as aphids and bamboo borers.
This plant produces beautiful, wind-pollinated flowers. However, the best propagation method for the dwarf Buddha is with rhizome cuttings. Many commercial developers use the plant for erosion control. Others use it for light construction and crafts. This plant is an excellent option for mass planting because it adds height to landscapes and provides perfect shade for walkways and driveways.
The name of this clumping bamboo originates from its canes feature swollen nodes resembling Buddha’s fat belly. A native of China, the dwarf Buddha is relatively cold and hardy and can grow exceptionally well under the right conditions. In addition, low maintenance eliminates the need for regular pruning and watering. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the dwarf Buddha thrives in hardiness zones 9b to 11. The recommended spacing for dwarf bamboo is between three and five feet.
Although the dwarf Buddha is relatively low maintenance, it requires occasional pruning to remove dead, broken, and sick branches.
