ABSTRACT
The article discusses a method of propagating bamboo plants. The author suggests cutting the culms or stems near the end of February, planting and fertilizing these in pots, and placing them under wet shady conditions. Varieties like the Bambusa Textilis, Gigantochloa Albociliata, and the mountain species of Drepanostachyum and Himalayacalamus are discussed. Importance is stressed in making the method available to local farmers to bring down the price of bamboo which comes to about 4 dollars per plant.
