I have been trying to find someome with black bamboo to trade, with no luck.

You know how it is...I got to have some.

Has anyone here bought from TyTy and if so how was the bamboo?

Any other nursery's or anyone willing to trade for my bamboo please LMK

Stay far away from tyty! Unless, you want to make a donation to them!

I have never bought from them, but I have read enough horror stories about them to steer clear. I would stronly suggest buying elsewhere unless you are really wanting to have another horror story about them to tell your friends. It depends on whether you want bamboo or an interesting, terrifying anecdote about them.

If you ever check Gardenwatchdog ( to get an idea of how reliable a nursery is you won't find TyTy listed among the other 4000+ nurseries. At one time they were listed, and the postings comprised the most horrifying, pathetic, and sometimes sadly hilarious set of failed transactions I've ever seen. However, TyTy threatened to sue the owners of Gardenwatchdog if their listing wasn't removed. Even though all the horrible reviews were the product of unhappy customers, and not the Gardenwatchdog folks, they did remove the listing in order to avoid spending resources defending against this threat. The only people who probably order from TyTy are those who don't know their reputation and have to find out the hard way.

I've got P nigra and B lako. You can have a division of P nigra. Do you live near Jacksonville ? Come and dig some. Rich
