Bamboo Plants


Zone Evansville 47715 | Anonymous added on May 9, 2017 | Answered

When I was in the hospital nobody watered my plants–NOBODY!!
It was about 4-5 feet tall and you guessed it,starting at the bottom all of the leaves to about 3/4 of the way up are yellow!
Is there anything I can do for it now or is it too late!?!??!?

Please help!! My middle son had a massive bleeding stroke at the age of 33! As we both loved plants I had purchased this bamboo
Plant at my first Mother’s Day after his stroke at his age of 33!
He did love the plant and we continued to until it began dying and then we get a sense of loss that water could have probably prevented!

So help us if you can!

Thank you so much,
Patricia Domizio

I would water the Bamboo well, but do not over water. Continue to care for the plant and give it time to recover.
Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
When you began to see active growth you can trim away any dead material and you can give it an application of slow release fertilizer.
