Gunny G: Encouraging Buddha Belly Effect…Succulents and More: 12/01/2010 – 01/01/2011

Buddha Belly shoot poking out of the groundYellow Buddha Belly, like its all-green sibling, is renowned for its swollen internodes—the sections between the nodes rings along its culms.

These “bellies” typically appear when the plant is grown in a hot and exposed area and starved of water and nutrients. In containers it is easier to force the growing conditions needed to produce this swelling. However, as I learned from personal experience, it’s rather difficult to find the ideal balance between keeping the plant dry enough so bellies develop and withholding too much water, in which case the leaves dry up and fall off.

It’s a good thing that bamboos are resilient and quickly replace dead leaves as soon as watering is resumed.The most pronounced bellies on our specimen are on the original culms; the new culms show just a hint of bulging. I’m very curious to see if I can get our plant to reliably produce bellies as it matures..

EXCERPT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
