Just wondering, the ones I got from Kudzu still have humongus leaves, and are looking more like a sasa than a moso, anyone experiencing this?

I almost gave up on you...glad to see you come up for air!

It's been my experience that juvenile moso do have those mega leaves for several years. The seedlings I have that are from the same batch as yours are getting 3-4 feet high and the leaves are still pretty big. I continue to think they are moso, though. I'll email you a picture in a few days.

So how are your seedlings doing? And how is the yard?

Here are some pictures of one my moso seedlings.

Big leaves as well and now about 3 feet tall.

WB, where the heck have you been?? I thought maybe you done retired and moved to South America.

My Moso also had large leaves when I first received it. It was a young plant, but soon grew smaller leaves once I put it in the ground. Culms are still small even after about eight years in the ground.

Good to see you're still around.

Still around, havent had time for gardening, the new house we bought has already been landscaped exstensively, and I am having troubles getting into it, that and I have a ton of ivy to deal with, the house is awesome though, I have been busy remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, made myself a doghouse downstairs, the garage is 800sf with alot of wasted space, so I put another room down there, I keep a couch, tv, beer fridge, my guitars, neon beer signs, etc. A true mans nirvana. No women allowed except for congical visits...j/k...or am I?
So yea this property is cool, alot of shade so it kinda limits what I can do, need to get more fargesias and hostas, the only one I had decided to go to flower (nitida)
Good to be back Tuck.
Wheres Cady hiding at?
