Artificial bamboo trees
Perfect for screening and making a statement, we have a whole range of artificial bamboo to turn any space into an oasis of zen. Our range of fake bamboo looks completely natural but unlike the real thing, it’s easy to control. Simply position it, sit back and enjoy!
Everything you need to know
Forget watering, feeding, repotting, cutting, prunining... the list goes on! Choosing an artificial bamboo plant is the simple way to have a fabulous oriental style plant in your home.
Our brilliant range of artificial bamboo trees have been carefully selected to avoid the maintenance faff, and be (almost) as realistic as the real thing. Our bamboo range includes real bamboo canes (you really can't be more realistic than that 😉) and authentic looking, dense bamboo foliage.
The oriental bamboo tree is a beautiful replica of the traditional Chinese bamboo tree, our natural bamboo tree features delicate stems and handcrafted leaves making it the ideal tree for creating a relaxing environment, and our black stem bamboo tree a sleek and stylish option for any office space or to create a zen atmosphere in any home.
A selection of our bamboo plants and trees have been upgraded to include UV stable foliage which means they can be used outside with minimal risk of fading or discolouring. For more information on what UV stability actually means, read our guide here.
You can filter our bamboos by outdoor suitability here.
Artificial bamboo plants and trees arrive in a small black starter pot. We recommend rehoming your beautiful new bamboo in a larger and more decorative plant pot (we’ll offer up some perfect options when you add it to your basket).
This step will also add weight and stability for when it’s in place, whether that inside or outside your home. Potting your bamboo is quick, easy, and only ever needs to be done once.
- Choose a plant pot. Choose one with drainage if the plant is going outside.
- Prefill the pot so that the starter pot sits just inside the top of the plant pot.
- Pop the tree into the pot.
- Fill around the starter pot with earth, sand, or decorative stones.
Unlike real bamboo, faux bamboo is incredibly low maintenance and won't run riot. It doesn’t require watering, pruning or the right ambient temperature. However to keep the plant looking fresh and as real as possible, we do recommend giving it a quick dust from time to time.
The price of artificial bamboo plants may be more than the price of real plants to begin with, but in the long run they definitely work out cheaper. You lose the cost of feeding and the cost of buying a larger pot to replant your bamboo in the future, not to mention how much time you’ll save not having to maintain trees that may not even survive in the end! Another benefit is that you won’t need to wait for your bamboo to grow to the size of our faux bamboo.
We stock wide range of bamboo trees to suit every interior design. The most popular bamboo trees have now been recreated as faux replicas so you’re sure to find your favourites!
Real plants don’t always look their best, it may not be the right season, it may not have been fed regularly or it may not have been watered correctly. Similarly, it may not have enough light or may have had too much, and the temperature has to be just right too.
Whichever way you look at it, a real plant can be a needy member of your household. If it’s not looked after right, it may end up looking pretty miserable or even in the bin. The best solution for this problem is to opt for artificial bamboo plants and leave behind the maintenance.
We package our artificial bamboo plants nice and tight to keep them safe during delivery. It does mean they can appear compressed. Don’t fret, it’s a quick and easy job to bring them to life…
Begin at the bottom of the the bamboo and work your way up, pulling and adjusting the harder wired plastic stems into position. Then work open any closed bunches of leaves. If there are any small crinkles, these should drop out over the next week or so.
If you need a hand, give us a bell and we'll guide you.
