Growing bamboo in the back

Recommended Posts


Dear cecil,
I read somewhere that chinese people consider it inauspicious to grow bamboo plants in the
back or side of the house and they believe that it should be grown only in the front of the house. Is it true. Thanks.

Dear Anon,
1. It is the belief of some that growing bamboo is inauspicious either at the back or the side.
2. This is because, bamboo grows real fast! In no time, the bamboo, if not properly maintained may grow into a `jungle'.
Furthermore, cutting down the bamboo, without removing the roots, cause little cups or catchment for mosquitoes as mosquitoes can breed in the circular tubes or hollowes caused by cutting down the trunk.
3. Thus, in my opinion, maintainance is the biggest worry for this plant.
Contrast this to other plants that have only a major trunk.
4. When bamboos grow out of control, you need to dig into the ground to remove the entire tree and its roots. Too many bamboos, will create a too yin environment as the area becomes `darken'.
Thus even if the bamboo plant is planted at the front, one still needs maintananece. It would be easier to plant more `loveable' trees. Trees that are easy to maintain.
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

Previously, I wrote the following:-

"Furthermore, cutting down the bamboo, without removing the roots, cause little cups or catchment for mosquitoes as mosquitoes can breed in the circular tubes or hollowes caused by cutting down the trunk."

Attached, please find the photos showing that unlike a single tree; bamboo trees grow sideways.

Photos also shows that when we cut some of the bamboo plants; one may cause little cubs that may collect water & perhaps cause mosquito breeding in the wet season.

Bamboo leaves fall aplenty.

And usually needs six monthly to eight monthly maintenance.

Needs a fairly large area. If not can grow and it’s crown can fan out similar to the above.

One way to make enemies is similar to the above. As some of it’s branches overshoots into the neighbour’s property.

And when the leaves fall, lots of maintenance to clear them.

If regularly trimmed, bamboo is useful to shield afternoon sun

This home on the left receives direct afternoon sun. The properly maintained bamboo plants in this home’s compound helps to screen off the afternoon sun:
