Can i have Black bamboo as an indoor plant?

United Kingdom Gb

It will be in my bedroom, probably not in direct sunlight although could be if needed.

On plant Phyllostachys nigra



It won't like the warmth very much - if your bedroom's unheated and very, very bright with daylight, you MIGHT get away with it, but its essentially an outdoor plant.

It also grows very large! I hope you have high ceilings! Is it in a big pot?? I agree with Bamboo - plant it outside - it'll be much happier there.

Why not go and see what's on offer at your local Garden Centre - or a Florist, maybe? There might be an indoor plant that you really love!

I have a Calathea... beautiful markings on its leaves. It's doing fine indoors!
