Description

Available in the following sizes:

  • 32 Ounce

Perfect for feeding all species of bamboo, this slow-release fertilizer combined with 30% Biochar also acts al conditioner. This is by far the best fertilizer we've found for bamboo plants which offers long term nutrient availability and prevention of excess runoff and leaching. 

Biochar assists in bio remediation of soil by allowing proper absorption rate of fertilizers and organics. In addition, it helps prevent leaching and runoff. Biochar elemental state allows it to persist in soils for years with little biological decay. Once added to the soil, it acts as a catalyst to enhance the plants ability to absorb or retain nutrients and water. Biochar also fosters the development of beneficial microorganisms. Greatest gain in plant productivity occurs when added to low PH or acidic soils. It is a great way to store and utilize carbon to assist in plant development. Our biochar is derived from bamboo using an updraft pyrolyzer. It is comprised of powder, granular, and nuggets to assist in downward soil migration.

Application Rates:

3 ounces per planting when topdressing

6 ounces per cubic foot when incorporating into soil

Helpful Tips

  • For best results, feed your bamboo twice a year. Early spring to encourage new growth and then again during the middle of the growing season to replace any nutrients that are being depleted.
