Bamboo as a vase

Bamboo actually forms a natural vessel for flowers or foliage during the growth process. There is a hollow chamber inside each stem of bamboo, between each joint, that can hold water. It can support foliage like it does in todays Fun with Flowers and J project. It can be filled with flower nutrient water and a flower can be added to extend the height of flower or foliage placements in an arrangement. I use this mechanic today to help elevate the Aspidistra Leaves…and give a special effect to the centerpiece!
