The Delicate Art of Bamboo Shaping
Bamboo stems are twisted, curled and shaped not through physical pressure, but by carefully turning the entire plant as it grows so the new growth orients to the light. Their fast growth ensures that this process doesn’t take overly long. It involves shading three sides of the plant while allowing only one side access to sunlight. After leaving the bamboo plants exposed this way for several weeks, the plant will begin to grow toward the light. Plant experts then turn the plant slightly into the shaded area to manipulate the growth pattern. All varieties of unique shapes result from careful turning. This process can take several months or even years, but growers have streamlined the process so that they can provide intricate plants at an economical price. When you send these beautiful bamboo plants, make sure the recipient knows you’re sending wishes for well-being, too.
