1. This bamboo can be difficult to identify as it has varied growth characteristics depending on location. 
2. In full shade the culms are apt to remain green. 
3. In partial or full sun the culms slowly turn yellow over the first year or two, then deeper gold and orange as they mature. The best way to identify this species is the compressed internodes that occur on random culms, usually (but not always) at the base. 
4. These compressed internode growths are called ‘tortoise shell’.The leaves tend to grow all the way to the ground on this species, and the type form leaves are green and lack any stripes or streaks. They can grow short, dense and shrubby in poor conditions, or tall and upright. In ideal conditions they can grow to 30 feet tall and 3 inches in diameter. 
5. They can be rampant runners and grow aggressively if left unchecked in gardens. Golden bamboo is listed as an invasive plant species in several states.
6. PDI prunes back the leaves as well as the underground runners of these rapidly growing bamboos.

Plantscape Designs Inc Staff

When we think of adding a colorful accent to our indoor office plants we often think about cut flowers or a flowering potted plant. Actually there is another option. Tropical foliage plants that have beautiful colored leaves. If your office has the right conditions, bright light and warm temperature, there is an unlimited selection of plants that have colorful foliage and variegated leaves. Crotons, Cordyline, Rex begonias, Stromanthe are just a few that can brighten your office with some color. We use many of these on locations in the Boston metro area. Colored leafy botanicals have unlimited plant possibilities.
