I bought some black bamboo two weeks ago which was delivered last week. We have not had a chance to plant it yet but now the leaves are turing brown. Is this normal for black bamboo? Thanks
As has been said, bamboo in containers need to be kept well watered.
My phyllostachys nigra is currently dropping old leaves as the new ones come through so maybe not bad news...... A photo would help.
I don't think It's dead or even dying Just keep it well watered it will come back.
