Yes, potted. As I mentioned in another post, I'm finding that my 'usual' container growing habits fail for montane species. I can grow really big bamboo plants in pots and I can kill montane species in pots quite easily.

Are you considering it for a full time indoor plant (ref photos) ? I'm not a indoor expert but my readings seem to indicate there are a limited number of species that can cut it. In terms of outdoor mtn. species, my experience with several mtn species is that their tolerance to outdoor conditions is very limited. Zone 3 - 1/2 sun to 1/2 shade has always worked for me. This is in ground. My experience with pots is limited. I have, of late, moved some newer mtn bamboo purchases to large pots without a problem. I have a lot of oak trees and as I prune them, areas that were shady are now sunny. Pots allow me to move plants to new conditions and minimize gopher damage. I plant my pots so that the tops are near soil level. I get a lot of roots to develop on the bottom of the pot and replant them in larger pots after a year or so. As a bottom line, no mtn bamboo can tolerate much direct sun and prefer protection from wind (snaps off tops of new shoots). My papy (in ground) has been a bit of a pain. It does great, then the sun shifts in summer and it shrivels up. Rgds

I killed my Borinda seedling as well. A bit too cold but not enough to kill it, then, as snow melted, it was overly wet for too long and it's roots completely rotted. The one planted in ground became tolerant enough to fight extremely well during our summer. Hardly ever I see leaf curl at all. I water it with cold ground water (around 12°C) weekly to cool it down a bit when it gets hot. The only issue it now has is poor cold tolerance. Anything lower than - 8°C fries it to the ground, anything lower than - 12C causes complete top kill. This year it got fried, but new shoots show signs that it survived winter in better shape than winter before.
Perhaps if I tried Borinda with better cold hardiness...

Sorry for confusion all my bamboos go outside in ground ,the pictures are after I unwrapped it , I was interested in the best position sun/shade etc , it’s got a -15c and my lowest is normally-5c

I'm real bad at conversion but isn't -5c is way above 15f recorded in the species list as the low temp? Suggest contacting Gib at Tradewinds Bamboo on any questions re mtn bamboo. He knows his stuff but may be hard to find if the surf is up. Rgds
