In summer and spring, the plant is watered abundantly, and in winter - moderately or in limited quantities. The higher the temperature in the room, the more moisture the plant will need.
Water as the soil in the pot dries out.
In spring and summer, usually about 3 times a week, and in winter watering should be reduced to once a week.
Make sure that there is no water retention in the pan of the pot - this can lead to rotting of the root system due to overwatering of the root ball.
Unlike most plants, Bamboo palm is a shade-loving plant. Ideal conditions are low to medium.
The best place indoors would be against a south or east window.
The pot should be turned regularly to the light so that the leaves grow evenly on all sides.
The temperature should be moderate from 59 - 70 °F and from 53 - 59 °F in winter.
Usually, bamboo palm should be taken outside or on a balcony in the summer. But avoid direct sunlight.
Also draughts should be avoided as much as possible.
It does not need regular pruning. Only old and diseased leaves should be pruned.
Bamboo palms are best suited to a soil that retains moisture but is well drained.
A porous but humus-rich soil is perfect. Adding peat moss, orchid bark and perlite to standard potting soil makes a great soil mix for bamboo palms.
Plants up to 3 years old - transplant once a year in March or April.
Plants over 3 years old - once every 2 to 4 years.
Plants over 10 years old are not transplanted at all, only the top word is changed.

- Life cycle
It grows slowly. If you planted the seeds, you should not expect the first plants until 6 months later.
It does not flower at home.
This is a long process that requires proper care. The seeds need to be soaked for 5 days and then planted in the soil.
The container with the planted seeds should be placed in a warm (77 °F) and moderately humid place. It is desirable to put in a kind of little greenhouse - that is, cover with glass or polyethylene.
After that, all you need to do is not forget to water. The first plants can appear in about 6 months.
You need a mature, vigorous and healthy plant with young shoots.
You need to take the palm out of its pot and very carefully separate the shoots from the plant. Try to do this gently and with as little damage to the root system as possible.
Plant all the small and mature plants in separate pots and don't forget to water them.
