Buddha's Belly True (Bambusa Ventricosa) bamboo was named for the plant's characteristic tendency to have bulging culms, or to 'belly out'.

Decorative poles make for a great feature plant. When stressed the lower internodes become short and swollen like a Buddha's belly and are valued for their furniture making and decorative uses. Dark green culms turn to gold when mature. Well suited as a potted or bonsai variety. Grows well in poor soil dry areas for windbreak or creek erosion.

Suitable as a bonsai variety. Makes an impenetrable hedge. Leaves are high-protein.
