Going to create a beginner bamboo package, what to include?
I remember a few years ago when I first was looking to grow some bamboo and I discovered how costly it was to buy. I couldn't image spending $65 for a 5-gallon pot of F. rufa or B. multiplex when I was just toying with the idea of growing bamboo. Luckily, I found a fellow hobbyist who didn't mind donating a small 3-gallon pot of B. multiplex to a beginner.
My question to my fellow growers, if you were going to create a beginner bamboo package, what species would you include? The basic idea is to offer 4 bamboos that are 'cheap' and easy to grow. I have been toying with this idea for a few months now. This is the suggestion that I thought of.
Total cost to the beginner: $10 + shipping. All of these are 1 gallon pots.
