The plants of Arundinaria anceps are, like all varieties of bamboo, very rustic and easily grown in many different environments. The preferred position for optimal exposure is that of a well-lit place in direct contact with the sun’s rays; nevertheless, thanks to its extreme ease of adaptation, the bamboo can be grown with satisfaction even in non-illuminated environments.

As already said, the Arundinaria anceps, like all varieties of bamboo, is a rustic and resistant plant and for this reason it can also withstand periods of drought, but, in the summer season, it is good to provide water as this type of plant prefers moist soils, but avoiding stagnation of water that can cause dangerous root rot. Watering in spring and summer must be more abundant, taking care to always check that the water runs off.
Arundinaria anceps has no particular soil requirements due to its rusticity, although the plant prefers soft, well-drained soils rich in organic substances that provide support for the rapid development of the plant. It is very easy to find bamboos near lakes or waterways, where the soil has a higher humidity, even if water stagnation is dangerous for their health.
Bamboo plants multiply through the division of rhizomes or by seed. Using this latest technique, you cannot be sure that the new plants have the same characteristics as the mother plant. If, therefore, you are not sure which is the precise species of the seed, it is better to proceed by cutting. In this case, the rhizomes should be taken in spring, dividing them into several parts, each of which should have a bud. They are then to be placed in a soil formed in equal parts by peat and sand.
For the first time, the pot should be kept in a shady place; after the appearance of the first shoots, it should be exposed in a brighter place and when the plants have sufficient resistance, they can be transplanted into the final pot.
Arundinaria anceps: Pests and diseases
The plants of Arundinaria anceps are rather resistant and rustic and therefore are hardly affected by diseases and parasites. It is good to remember that unlike what we are used to observing in the varieties of plants that we have in the garden for which the foliar exchange occurs with the autumn, these plants lose their leaves in spring, so this is not a symptom of a disease.
Bamboo may be attacked by cochineal or aphids, which should be countered quickly and effectively. Another problem that can affect this variety are radical rottenness, caused by excessive watering and too compact and poorly drained soil.
