Planting and Care
Akebonosugi is best grown in full sun or semi shade. Plant with the addition of some organic matter and make sure it's kept moist for atleast the first 6 months. When in the ground, once established it will mostly look after itself.
The best food a bamboo can have is its own leaves and culm sheafs, so leave them to mulch the plant. If you're worried about the bamboo running you can use a bamboo barrier or grow it in a pot using a good soil based compost, keeping it well fed and watered.
Any reasonable soil is ok, add organic matter to help the bamboo establish.
Akebonosugji is suited to being grown in a pot, use a good loam based compost, don't let it dry out and feed regularly.
