Bamboo plant

Zone Leek Staffordshire | Anonymous added on May 19, 2017 | Answered

I have a bamboo in a pot that has grown to about 6 feet. Because it kept blowing over (it is on a balcony I have re-potted it in a larger sturdier pot. Since then all the leaves have turned brown and dropped off. What can I do to save it? It is a green bamboo with black stems but I don't know its name.

'm sorry your bamboo plant isn't doing well! This is usually caused by environmental issues or pests, and especially since you recently repotted it, there's a chance the new soil mix isn't agreeing with it. Check your soil content and water situation.
