Bamboo Swap

Posted by lassieloviestoto (My Page) on

I'm a bamboo guy in Phoenix.
Got some great punting pole (clumper)
and vivax (aggressive runner) plants.
They do well in all AZ temps. Have
been down to 12 degree F and up to
116 degree F and are alive and well
During the coldest days, I ran a fan
on them to keep the air flowing.
The vivax is good down to -5F so it's
never a problem
Punting Pole burns some leaf tips over
105F and loses leaves at 20F and lower
but not significant.
Both types have large culms (stalks)
with the PP at around 2 - 2.5 max
and the vivax up to 5 -6 inches.
Would like to trade for some Moso
or other large culms species.
Like to hear from other Phoenix growers.
I am working on in vitro growing with
some success.
Talk soon.

RE: Bamboo Swap

I don't have any bamboo to swap, but I would be interested if you have any for sale. One of the ideas I have been throwing around with my hubby is starting a bamboo garden. If you have any for sale, shoot me an email.


RE: Bamboo Swap

I'm looking for bamboo poles of at least 3" diameter and 10' in length. Any idea where I might find them? Thanks!
