eBay Bambusa lako seed redux
Since the debate as to the IDs of different bamboo spp. whose seeds have been offered by online vendors has apparently been going on for at least several years, and the logic provided by sceptics is often impeccable, I was wondering whether any of the people who purchased, germinated and presumably have grown out putative Bambusa lako seed in 05 and 06 are now satisfied/convinced that their plants are the Real McCoy?
Since there are now additional ornamental bamboo spp. appearing with regularity on eBay and so forth, it seems that it would be valuable to hear the opinions of those who bit a few years back. I would assume, at the very least, that common material such as B. ventricosa and B. vulgaris would be properly IDd, but as always I s'pose, caveat emptor.
