How to Grow Moso Bamboo Seeds

Bamboo for Timber Harvest
Bamboo does not produce seeds very often, generally flowering -- a requirement for the production of seeds -- only once every 50 years or so, according to information from the Arizona Cooperative Extension Service.

Because of this, bamboo is typically reproduced by dividing existing stands and allowing them to send out runners that produce new plants. If you have seeds, however, bamboo, including the moso variety, can be grown from them. The techniques for germination are simple and, in practice, result in a success rate of about 75 percent.

1. Gently rinse the seeds in clean water, then soak them for five minutes in water that is 9 parts water to 1 part salt. Rinse them with fresh water. Soak the rinsed seeds in clean water for 15 minutes.

2. Mix equal parts perlite and sphagnum moss together, making enough to completely fill your container. Soak the mixture thoroughly. Drain until there is just enough moisture to squeeze out a few drops.

3. Spread the planting mix evenly in the flat container, reserving about a third of the mix for covering the seeds.

4. Sprinkle the moso bamboo seeds evenly over the top of the mixture in the container. Cover the seeds carefully with the remaining moss and perlite mixture. Place the lid on the container.

5. Check the moisture level in the planting box twice a week. If it seems dry, mist carefully with plain water in a spray bottle. Replace the lid when you're done.

6. Watch the seeds for signs of sprouting. Keep the lid on until the seedlings almost touch it, after which, remove it. The seeds will continue to sprout for several weeks. Be sure to keep them moist.

7. Spray liquid fertilizer on the bamboo when the plants are 4 inches tall or about 1 month old. Mix and apply it according to the manufacturer's directions. Transplant the seedlings at any point after the first four or five weeks. You can put them in small pots or directly into an outdoor area.

About:Bamboo is a group of perennial evergreens in the true grass family Poaceae, subfamily Bambusoideae, tribe Bambuseae. Giant bamboos are the largest members of the grass family. In bamboo, the internodal regions of the stem are hollow and the vascular bundles in the cross section are scattered throughout the stem instead of in a cylindrical arrangement. The dicotyledonous woody xylem is also absent. The absence of secondary growth wood causes the stems of monocots, even of palms and large bamboos, to be columnar rather than tapering.

Bamboos are some of the fastest growing plants in the world,[2] as some species have been recorded as growing up to 100 cm (39 in) within a 24 hour period due to a unique rhizome-dependent system. Bamboos are of notable economic and cultural significance in South Asia, South East Asia and East Asia, being used for building materials, as a food source, and as a versatile raw product.
Work:The shoots (new culms that come out of the ground) of bamboo are edible. Bamboo is used in Chinese medicine for treating infections and healing.
More Info:In its natural form, bamboo as a construction material is traditionally associated with the cultures of South Asia, East Asia and the South Pacific, to some extent in Central and South America and by extension in the aesthetic of Tiki culture. In China and India, bamboo was used to hold up simple suspension bridges, either by making cables of split bamboo or twisting whole culms of sufficiently pliable bamboo together. One such bridge in the area of Qian-Xian is referenced in writings dating back 960 A.D. and may have stood since as far back as the 3rd century B.C., due largely to continuous maintenance.

Bamboo has also long been used as scaffolding; the practice has been banned in China for buildings over six storeys but is still in continuous use for skyscrapers in Hong Kong. In the Philippines, the nipa hut is a fairly typical example of the most basic sort of housing where bamboo is used; the walls are split and woven bamboo, and bamboo slats and poles may be used as its support. In Japanese architecture, bamboo is used primarily as a supplemental and/or decorative element in buildings such as fencing, fountains, grates and gutters, largely due to the ready abundance of quality timber.
