How to Sow and Care for Moso Bamboo
It is very easy to grow Moso Bamboo from seeds. Put the Moso bamboo seeds in a strainer and rinse them with cool water to remove any dust or debris. After soaking the seeds for 15 minutes, drain them and let them dry. Mix perlite with peat moss in equal parts. You should be able to grab a handful and barely squeeze out a drop of the mixture after it has been moistened.
Pour the mixture into a flat planter box. Each row of soil mix should be sown with a few seeds about 2.5 cm deep. Each hole should contain about ten seeds. These seeds should be sown into the soil mix. Spread fine soil over the seeds. Keep it in a quiet area and cover it with a lid. Next, let's discuss germinating seeds.
Fresh air should be provided to the plants every three days by removing the lid. If the soil mix has become dry, it will need to be moistened. Make sure that the mixture is covered after it has been watered. After seedlings have reached the lid, remove the lid permanently. Moso Bamboo seeds will sprout after two to three weeks, and the seeds will continue to grow until they have all emerged.
Blend a houseplant fertilizer all-purpose according to the package directions. Once the plants are four weeks old, place the fertilizer into a clean spray bottle and mist the plants. After seedlings have grown for a month, you can transplant them into individual pots.
