Hairy handle, silver feather, bamboo, silver leaf, bamboo flower

Alias: Silver Yeh

Morphological characteristics:

Plant height 60 cm to 90 cm. The stems and stems grow, the petiole is elongated like reeds, leaves are lanceolate, silvery white, and the midrib and leaf margins are silver-green. There are alternating silver-green markings on both sides of the midrib, and the long markings are connected to the leaf margins. .

Most species have underground rhizomes or tubers. In addition to the leaf sheaths at the base of the leaves, there is a significantly enlarged joint at the junction of the leaf and petiole, known as the "leaf pillow", which contains water cells and regulates the direction of the leaves. The role of the leaf, that is, when the leaves are upright when the water is sufficient at night, when the water is insufficient during the day, the leaves expand.

Growth habits:

The silvery bamboo poles of the hairy stems belong to tropical plants. They are warm, moist and light. They are not tolerant to cold, nor to drought. They are afraid of exposure to the sun. If the sun shines directly, they will burn the leaves, causing local scorching of the edges of the leaves. The new leaves will stop growing. Yellowing, so pay attention to shading in cultivation.

Cultivation and conservation:

However, the growing environment should not be too shady. Otherwise, the plants will grow weaker. The pattern on some leaf species will fade or even disappear, and it is best to put them in a bright place without direct sunlight. Bamboo grasshoppers are more sensitive to water reactions and should be fully watered during the growing season to keep the basin soil moist. However, water should not accumulate in the soil. Otherwise it will cause root rot and even plant death.

As the bamboo leaves are large, the water evaporates quickly, so the air humidity is required to be high. If the air humidity is not enough, the leaves will curl immediately and the reaction is very sensitive. Even if it is a new leaf growth stage, the plants should be sprayed with water frequently. Due to air-drying, the new leaves will be difficult to stretch, the leaf margins will be yellow, the leaves will be dull, and the velvet bamboo and other species will have a velvety texture, which will seriously affect the viewing. Therefore, indoor cultivation air humidity must be maintained at 70% to 80%.

For beauty, you can often use a clean soft cloth dipped in clean water to scrub the leaves so that the leaves are bright and shiny. In midsummer, when the temperature exceeds 35°C, the growth of the leaves is not good. Attention should be paid to ventilation and water spray to cool the plants, so that the plants have a cool and moist environment. The end of spring and early summer is the growth period of new leaves. Every 10 days or so, a thin liquid fertilizer or compound fertilizer is applied. Every summer 20 days and 30 days after the early autumn, a fertilizer is applied. Note that the amount of nitrogen fertilizer should not be excessive when fertilizing, otherwise it will make The leaves are dull, and the markings are reduced. The ratio of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium is generally 2:1:1, so that the leaf color is bright and beautiful, and has high ornamental value.

When the winter temperature is lower than 15°C, the plants will stop growing. If the temperature is lower than 13°C for a long time, the leaves will suffer freezing injury. Therefore, the overwintering temperature is preferably not lower than 13°C, and more light is accepted, fertilization is stopped, watering is appropriately reduced, and pots are kept The soil is not dry, and after the new leaves grow in the spring, normal management resumes.

Change pots every other year, basin soil should be loose and fertile, drainage permeability is good, and rich in humus slightly acidic soil, can be used rot leaf soil or peat soil plus a small amount of coarse sand or perlite mixture preparation.


The breeding of most varieties of bamboo vines can be carried out in combination with a potted ramet. When cultivating the ramets, care must be taken to ensure that each segment contains more leaves and robust roots. The new plant should not be planted too deeply, and all the roots should be buried in the soil. Yes, otherwise it will affect the growth of new shoots.

The newly planted plants need to control the soil moisture, but they can often spray water on the leaves to increase the air humidity, so that they can fully water before they grow new roots. For large populations, tissue culture methods can also be used.
