Indian Bamboo Leaves


The leaves of the Indian Bamboo Plant, (Gigantochloa scortechinii), are interesting and very useful! They are surprisingly durable, good sized (10″/25.4cm or more! ), and look remarkably “tropical”- making them perfect for aquariums, vivariums, insect enclosures, etc.


These leaves last a very long term submerged, and make a great compliment to a botanical-style aquarium, providing color contrast and an altogether different look than any other leaves we offer!


They’re are harvested by a family-owned operation from a small village in India. They’re free of pesticides, herbicides, and pollution. They’re gathered after having fallen from the trees, rinsed and air dried.



Before using the leaves in your aquarium, we recommend boiling them for about 10 minutes, or steeping them in boiling water for about 10 minutes or so.
