Bamboo plant pot sizes

Gracilis Bamboo plant pot size comparison

When purchasing plants on the internet, it can be quite confusing, and often misleading when the product price is defined by the different pot or bag sizes. This is particularly relevant with bamboo plants when comparing container size to the listed prices between all the different bamboo plant sellers available.

There is often a big price difference between what would appear to be the same product. It is important to be aware that this price difference may also mean a big difference in the size and quality of the bamboo plant. If an image of the product is not available, then we would suggest asking for one to be provided.

At Living Bamboo each pot contains one bamboo plant that has been propagated (reproduced) from a healthy parent plant. Our different pot sizes represent the maturity and size of the plant. As the pot size increases, the price also increases relevant to the advancement of each plant and the time taken over the years to get the plant to that stage within the nursery.

Examples of our typical Gracilis pot sizes are:

180mm pot or 3L bag – 1.5 to 2m tall

200mm pot – 2 to 3m tall
