This weekend I was doing some research on the best way to grow bamboo indoors. I found out that the best climate is a warm one (about 75 degrees). You also want to put your bamboo in a short and fat, gallon sized pot, this is because bamboo needs plenty of room to grow. I also learned that, after a few years you should gradually move the bamboo into a bigger pot.Last week I potted some of my own, and hopefully it will grow like my research said it should. If everyone grows their own bamboo it would be easier for the world to convert from wood to bamboo. The process seems easy enough,so will you do your part?

Over the past few weeks I have been doing things with my project like making posters that explain why we should use bamboo instead of wood. I've also been doing research about where and how to grow bamboo, so that I can eventually cultivate some of my own. Hopefully, I will be able to bring some of it into class. I have also been trying to find a source of publicity, this blog being one. I think I am also going to put an awareness ad in the Midlothian Exchange newspaper that I get in the mail regularly. This will help get information out about this, and other green initiatives that the community can become involved in.
