And I think some people have C culeou also in flower? Makes me wonder if they all are different clones of the same thing, I suspect there are folks who can prove otherwise but still. I collected native A gigantea in Indiana several years ago and one of the groves had a demarcation line where the physical attributes of the plant suddenly changed - a section of attractive dark green bamboo in the 8-10 foot range suddenly turned into something about 3-4 feet high that filled the rest of the space. Seeing them in another context you would not connect the dots...

Ref. ABS species list Gigantea " is closely allied with C. culeou". How it's allied is not indicated. Rgds

Color on seed clusters continues to fade as clusters dry out and seeds drop. Volume of dropped seeds up substantially. Size of seeds is far less than I projected. Small and light means more seed potential spread of Gen. 2 (?). Last call for folks who want seeds.

updated photo of a seed cluster. Pull test indicates seeds hold firm until plant is ready to release them.
