Bamboo Giant Fertilizer - for Maximum Growth and Health

Our Bamboo Food is a time-release fertilizer specially formulated for optimum production -- A high nitrogen formula with the essential minerals bamboo needs for vigorous growth.

  • Promotes healthy bamboo growth

  • Enhances growth for healthier, stronger plants
  • Easy to use - apply every 3 months

Instructions for use:

Bamboo Grow 16-8-12 is a slow release fertilizer that lasts up to 3 to 4 months. Applications of this fertilizer provides a slow release of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium to the plant. This eliminates the feast or famine associated with conventional soluble fertilizers, and helps insure an ideal level of nutrients for optimum plant nutrition. Bamboo Grow 16-8-12 is basically unaffected by watering because the nutrient release is affected only by change in soil temperature. The release rate of each fertilizer prill increases as the soil warms, and decreases as the soil cools, therefore corresponding to plant growth needs.

In the North, apply in early spring, early summer, and fall during or after leaf drop but not before the ground freezes. In the South, apply in late winter, early spring, mid-summer and fall.

For running bamboo, apply uniformly over entire bamboo planting area. For best results, apply to the soil prior to mulching. For clumping bamboo, apply evenly on the ground within the drip zone of the plants (spread of branches).

Apply uniformly to soil surface at a rate of 1/4 lb. (1/4 cup) per 10 square feet.
