Growing bamboo trees on a balcony

Recommended Posts

Growing bamboo trees on a balcony

Certain trees are not appropriate at one's apartment balcony.

For example; bamboo trees need as much height as possible.

In this photo, the trees have even exceeded the height of the owners balcony ceiling.

It is dangerous to trim the trees now. Even if the upper floor neighbour gave them permission to do so.

Cannot also image the amount of falling leaves to neighbors below...

Umbrella type of tree... 

Actual Italian name is Bucida molinetti.

During the dry Seasons, it sheds lots and lots of small leaves...

Stepping on these leaves is like stepping on mini-fire crackers...as one can hear the grinding + popping sound as the leaves are crushed...

Opposite is true for these trees. They shed few leaves at any one time.

Well behaved and can grow thin and tall. 

A good thing is that they look so unappealing to the termites.

Bamboo plants do not have just a single tree trunk.

In fact each tree /trunk will grow out. And this is how it looks like : lumped together

1. Bamboo trees grows in clumps. From a few clumps to like a cluster of bamboo trees:

2. Above: These bamboo trees are like overgrown toe nails. They keep on multiply.

3. Above: Luckily the trees were amputated at the solid part.  

3.1 Else if chopped at part of it’s compartment area.. may become a breeding grounds of mosquito larvaes.

3.2 As it takes just two cents shallow height of water to be able to breed the larvaes.

4. Another disadvantage of bamboo trees is it’s ability to shed lots of leaves!

4.1. Lots of maintenance both in the need for frequent trimming as well as cleaning it’s surrounding areas.

4.2. Snakes often find refuge within the bamboo trees.

5. Really, what more can I say!
