    In New Guinea, I saw a clump growing wild that must have been a hundred feet tall, and the natives use the split canes to bring water to their villages from far away.

    Here in Ca., they are popular landscape plants, but not the exotic varieties. They sell for about 100 dollars each retail for a 15 gallon pot, and 50 or 60 wholesale. I have to buy them all the time, as I haven't the space to grow them. Too bad you live so far from me, I'd rather give you the money to help expand your collection than give it to some mega nursery.

    For some reason, the whole grass complex is in vogue right now, I'm not sure why, as they really don't do anything for me, but people want papyrus, bamboo, fountain grass etc...

    I do wish I could grow some of the giant bamboo here, though. It's so increadibly usefull as well as pretty.

    When it comes to fads, who can say? These nose rings and..........well, whatever. What species of bamboo is this that you're speaking of? Some are worth more than others, and I agree with you about the ease of propagation. One big rizome in the container with fertilizer ever two weeks will get a big plant "quick time"

    Unhappy

    I was just skimming through the misc. plant forum and then i saw this post on bamboo. It reminded me of something i heard about bamboo. I heard that some larger bamboo can grow up to 10 feet per day. Does anyone know if this is true?? I think this is absolutely amazing if it is true.
