A great indoor plant that you can grow in your home.

Bamboo is easy to care for, and is great for interior spaces with dim natural light.

With these simple steps, you can brighten up your home with healthy plants.

Growing Instructions

  1. Buy a healthy bamboo chute. Bamboo will grow its own new roots, so you just need to make sure you choose a chute that’s a healthy shade of light green – neither yellow nor dark green
  2. Choose an interesting transparent container to keep your plant. That way you can see the roots!  Choose a container that’s an appropriate size and shape for your chute

  3. To keep the bamboo standing up, add pebbles, glass marbles, or stones to the container. You can get creative and combine  it with the design of your home!

  4. Make sure that your bamboo is kept with 2-3 inches of the stem submerged in water. Unlike some other plants, bamboo likes to take root in a few inches of water constantly in order to grow and be healthy. You cannot over water the plant! Refill the water as necessary to keep it at this level.

  5. Find a home in your home for the plant. Bamboo likes filtered sunlight, not direct sunlight. I  keep mine in my bathroom, which doesn’t get a lot of light.

  6. Keep tabs on your plant. If it starts to wilt, move it to a place with more light. Make sure the water level is high enough. And lastly, enjoy!

Are Plumeria on Your Favorite Flower List?

Art Pint - Plumeria

Plumeria I Square


  1. Plumeria is related to the Oleander
  2. It’s common name is Frangipani
  3. Both possess poisonous, milky sap (similar to Euphorbia among them the Poinsettia)
  4. Flowers are most fragrant at night in order to lure sphinx moths to pollinate them. The flowers have no nectar , and simply dupe their pollinators as they move from flower to flower in their fruitless search for nectar.

AND THE BIG NUMBER 5 It’s the flower most requested by people at my street fair booth.

Every week, without fail, I get asked, “Do you have a painting of Plumeria?“ And weekly for about 5 years, my answer was simply…No, but I will soon. Then last fall a couple bought 3 pieces of my artwork, which were all tropical in nature.

Of course she asked the famous question. And I promptly answered…no, but I will soon.

OK I finally did it. The painting…Plumeria I White. (I knew there were more in sight)


That became the next most often asked question. It didn’t take very long and then there was Plumeria III Pink.
