Does anyone, any where, know where I can find black budda belly bamboo. When I was in Thailand I saw this and It wasn't painted, It was the natural color. Just like budda belly except it was black! Was this a rare find? I'll be returning sometime soon and I hope I can find it again.

Ask about which one it would be at Bamboo forum. You won't be able to import bamboo plants legally from overseas.

As far as I know, there isn't a black form of Buddha Belly. There is Phyllostachys nigra, which is black bamboo. As Bboy suggests, ask on the Bamboo Forum.
