I recently bought a 2m. High bamboo plant . The nursery guy said keep it in a plate of water and water twice daily . I did that but after a month i noticed the leaves getting yellow and the tips brown and dry . I reduced the watering and no more water in the plate under it . So is it watering pbs or sun pbs or doesnt need fertiliser and what kind of fertiliser . Please help! Thks

It does show signs of overwatering from the yellowing tips. Depending on how crowded it is in the pot, it may need to be up-potted. Bamboo can be fertilized with a general purpose fertilizer, slow release fertilizers prevent over fertilizing. This article may help you
