I would like to grow golden bamboo on my patio in planters. Will golden bamboo grow lush and healthy in planters and what size planters should I use?

Golden Bamboo is a clump forming type, perfectly adaptable to growing in containers. I'd start with at least a 5-gallon container; a 10-gallon would provide even more room for growth. When the clump becomes over-crowded in 3-4 years, you can either divide and replant part of it, or move the entire clump up to a larger container. Exposure to full sunshine, adequate water, and occasional feeding will keep your bamboo lush and lovely. Best wishes with your new bamboo!
