New shoots are produced from May. The canes are harvested commercially for their many uses in Japan. It is the third most commonly cultivated species in Japan. This species is notably resistant to honey fungus.Unlike many bamboos, this plant quite often flowers and sets viable seed, the plants do not usually die as a result of this. However, if they are fed with artificial NPK fertilizers at this time they are far less likely to survive.
