(Dendrocalamus minor 'Casper')
Casper Ghost is a part of our unique & unusual bamboo range of which we have a small selection available. These beautiful species of bamboo are not the popular types that sell on mass, but rather the specialised varieties types for bamboo enthusiasts and collectors.
Casper Ghost is the smaller version of Ghost bamboo. It has the beautiful white/grey powdered culms like Ghost, though it is slightly shorter, and has a smaller footprint and has thinner culms. Traditionally Ghost bamboo canopies out like a big fig tree whereas Casper Ghost tends to have a more simple open shape, like a large vase.
It is an extremely pretty and stunning feature bamboo, and perfect for those who love Ghost but do not have the space to allocate for such a large species. It can be planted as a single specimen, as a pair at an entrance or as a tunnel or grove.
Casper Ghost is fairly quick growing and extremely low maintenance once established. It is also very drought tolerant, but looks best with regular water.

The approximate size of bamboo is only a guide. Plant measurements are taken from the bottom of the pot.
The sizing of plants does vary, particularly through different seasons of the year.
The most valuable part of the bamboo is the rootball size within the pots, which produces incredibly fast growth once planted.
