Question
I would like to take cuttings from my bamboo and use them as decoration in the house. The leaves dry and curl up within 2 days. Is their some way to stop that?   thanks

Answer
Dear Ernie & Debbie,
It is a natural process in plants. Bamboo is also a very sophisticated plant and dries up very soon. If you want to keep it fresh for long time then you can use wet clayey sponge for base preparation just like flowers.
I hope it will work.
