I am really hoping that this one is P. Vivax one because the canes are thin walled and 2 in never puts out many canes each year. maybe 4-5 each year. plus the branches stick straight out from the culms and they are very straight canes. Not sizing up very fast though.

From the appearance it could be any one of at least a dozen different Phyllostachys. However, if it is pretty thin-walled, large diameter, and straight culmed, vivax is a good guess.

Thank You Kudzu9 I have a few of these that are like that. When I got this grove it was from a grove of mixed bamboo that originally came from the Cincinnati Zoo the owner had no I dea he even had different species. I soon realized I had about 4-5 different species in there. Man was I happy, and he gave me all of it for free. I just had to dig it out for him. I ended up getting about 50-60 clumps out of it.

gardener1-
Thanks for the additional info. As I saw your various posts I started wondering whether you inherited a bunch of unknown bamboo, or were contemplating stealing some good ones! It looks like you really lucked out. Have fun...

I definetly lucked out several of my bamboo originally came from the zoo and they were from different people 3 different people and about 10 different kinds of bamboo. I've never stolen any of it although sometimes it feels like a steal. I actually remove it for people for free and get many different species this way. It's amazing how many people are growing rare bamboo and dont even know it. Since I got my first one I've never heard of the zoo selling bamboo but all these people say thats where they got it. One lady actually worked there and thats where I got my P. Japonica and Hibanobambusa Tranquillins Shiroshima.
