Hi, Y'all

oxankle(6/7)December 13, 2009


Ordinarily I am over at the fig forum, but I have been trying to get back into the groove and need some help. My garden is put away for the winter, I've planted my new fruit trees, my figs are tucked away and now I want to re-establish the bamboo I had to take out a few years back.

I got three nice clumps of roots from a friend, set one in the corner of my garden and two in the woods down by my creek. Unfortunately I knew too little about bamboo and lost them.

Now I want to try again. If anyone has some root cuttings of Decora, Rubromarginata, Dulcis or phyllostachys nigra Henon I would like to acquire enough for a start. I will pay, or I will trade either fig cuttings or rooted plants, or I can trade rooted suckers from my Jujube.

Oxankle, you'll probably have better luck growing bamboo if you get people to trade you complete bamboo plants, rather than just the rhizomes. Growing bamboo from rhizome usually results in a success rate of 0-50% depending on species, and it takes years before you have a decent size plant.
