does anyone know of a good bamboo nursery that sells b. chungii for under $50?
Can't find any after a quick look, but the extra price is money worth spending.
Chungii has been very slow growing here. The first three years in the ground, it only put up two new culms each year.
Three last year but the largest is 2 inches thick and over 30 feet tall. Very long internodes, some three feet in length.
The blue colour is well worth spending a little extra money for.
