Cactus Jungle in Berkeley carries a select group of bamboo plants that are perfectly suited to the Bay Area's mediterranean climate. Most are very low water or summer drought-tolerant, meaning no additional irrigation is needed at all, once the plants are established in the ground (although a monthly watering is nice, too). Many are useful for containers, both indoors and outdoors.

Cactus Jungle sells bamboo plants in 1 ga., 5 ga. and 15 ga. pots.

Delivery is available in Berkeley and throughout the Bay Area

Plant Sizes
1ga: 2-3ft, 2-5 culms
5ga: 3-7ft, 3-7 culms
15ga: 6-13ft, 6-12 culms
