Any concerns with bamboo(plant) in ball python enclosure?

One of ours grew over 12’ in less than a week. It’s amazing stuff.

Wow! Do you keep it in a barn or greenhouse or in the natural climate? Do you know which species that was?

Phyllostachys vivax
It’s a hardy timber species that can grow up to 70’ tall and 5" in diameter. Beautiful stuff when it gets large. We also have a small plot of Black bamboo and incense bamboo. Most of the clumping species don’t grow near as large but can still make great decoration.


Definitely want some of this! I would want to buy a active clump instead of waiting by means of propagation. It is a truly breathtaking bamboo.
