bamboo doesn't flower yearly like most plants and it dies a lot of the time when it does. Sometimes a hundred years between flowering.

Bamboo seeds are offered on ebay on a regular basis. I've never tried to grow any myself so can't tell you how hard or easy they are to grow.

I think if you search a few pages back of this bamboo forum's past postings, you'll find discussions on germintion.

I've started moso and it was easy. Just like lawn seed.
