Hi,I am an Italian boy. I live in Southern Italy, Apulia in the province of Bari in a country near the sea along the Adriatic coast. I planted several dendrocalamus plants. I do not know whether it is asper or latiflorus. what do you think about dendrocalamus in my area? could it stand and develop well? thanks for your precious advice! My photo. ImageImageImageImage

It looks like advertisements from the same company I see here promising large returns on investment for growing D asper & P edulis. They are very misleading with their company as the places they advertise will not grow these bamboo very well due to climate. This company had ads all over Craigslist and now they totally have disappeared.

That may not be the situation you have but to grow bamboo commercially you need a species that should never experience temperatures near the cold tolerance limit of a bamboo and your climate sounds like it might be too cold for D asper.

Wow, I didn’t know they were on everybody’s Craigslist! I harassed them so much here that they stopped posting on my local CL. Too funny. It seems like the same people that sold him his plants. Or one hell of a coincidence that it’s the same species

I would not recommend growing any of tropical clumpers in Italy, except peehaps the southern part and even that, just around the mediterranean coast. Even there it would struggle when temperatures would dip to freezing temperature. - 4C is a big no-no for any tropical bamboo, but is perfectly OK for temperate timber bamboos, like Phyllostachys pubescens (Moso) or Phyllostachys bambusoides. The only issue could be drought in places with sandy soil and arid climate, there, you will need some sort of irrigation. I live in Slovenia, so we are practically neighbors, and we are cold enough for even Moso to struggle in the winter. I'm not sure where you live, but I do think Moso would be a good option.
