Re: Phyllostachys nigra variegata

Yeah from your pictures your right how about this Phyllostachys rubicunda 'Aureovariegata' although I think it’s still different I guess this is from Jos' list? A rubicunda seedling may be a possible candidate if it is a phyllo given that it flowered (is still flowering?) a few years ago. In this r...

Re: Fargesia sp. Jiuzhaigou IX photos?

Steffen... Definitely noted about the strong sunlight. I have 4 and it’s very green and should I say boring compared to those in the strong light I’ve seen. I’m tempted to move one of them ( I’ve got two planted in the yard ) but it’s a nice privacy screen and already is 8+’ high. ‘ deep purple ‘ is...

Re: Bamboo winter update (No pics)

Comox report Vancouver Island BC.

Bamboo has done really good but I don’t think I’ve seen any temps lower then -5c. I’ve had some breakage on Vivax aureocaulis from snow but that’s it.

My fargesia scabrida is shooting but it is up next to the home on a West wall.

Re: Phyllostachys nigra variegata

Thanks John.

For the most part I’m using an iPhone tho so the app that Deane suggested had been working wonderful. It’s super easy and keeps the size to 1000x1000

Thanks for all the tips guys.

Apple :)



Here’s a picture of my friends that’s been through -20c with minimal hay protection and a cover. It’s east coast USA. It’s looking really good so far but it was protected.

Re: Indoor Moso

Re: Fargesia sp. Jiuzhaigou IX photos?

I’ve got one but I’m not too sure it’s the real number four. Turns green in the shade I’ve got it. No pictures but I’ll try to take some when I’m home.
