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 respect other phyllos that recently went into flower such as phyllostachys arcana, praecox or kwangsiensis may also be interesting candidates.

I just wish we had pictures of a more mature specimen.



This was a tissue culture plant and not a seed grown plant though.


In this case, there is a mature sized bamboo out there that looks identical. Without gene recombination, the characteristics of the plant should remain identical to the donor of bamboo cells used in tissue culture process. I guess if the nursery in which they did the TC started seeds a few years ago and received a nicely variegated and vigorous seedling, they could make a bunch of copies in like 2 years, perhaps even sooner.

I hope someone manages to get first shoots that will be large enough to allow ID or at least narrow the list of possible candidates.


I have 3 Phyllostachys arcana seedlings with leaf variegation that slightly resembles variegation of 'Phyllostachys nigra variegata' from some of the photos I've seen published. They have similar progressive kind of variegation - lime green leaf color at first, then after a week or so, the striping becomes more and more evident. Check the first photos from Deane if you want to know what i mean.
Dean's photo. Check the youngest leaves that are lime green. They go to mopre variegated striped pattern when they get older.
download/file.php?id=4803&t=1
The leaves are not healthy and I've had some necrosis on lower leaves. It can be seen, however, that the fresh leaves are lime green with hardly any variegation and the variegation occurs as the leaves age.

Younger seedling photo - leaves are somewhat healthier. Youngest leaf is almost uniform regarding the color, some striping can be seen. The second youngest leaf has variegation, but the yellow striping is still somewhat green. Third leaf is already variegated and doesn't get much different as it matures into an old leaf - the color of the striping becomes even more yellow, yet, it's not that drastic. All three seedlings I've grown show the same pattern. The major difference among them is, that one of the seedlings looses the variegation completely from time to time and becomes fully variegated when it feels fit. I think there must be an environmental trigger. It colored up this autumn and lost the variegation when I planted it outside in the spring. I'll know more next year if all goes well.

I still think it really could be Phyllostachys nigra aureovariegata (variegata).

Look here (last 4 pictures): http://forum.bambusy.info/post/7560/#p7560

Old stems are going to black, the same like normal Ph. nigra. Black spots are visible already. Branching looks like Phyllostachys, not like Pleioblastus or Hibanobambusa.

Image

New shoots are not hairy, so it is not Moso.

Image

Leaves has shape and size like nigra. For me looks like small nigra.

In threads above you talk about Phyllostachys nigra Kiyoshi.

I am lucky to have one small in my garden. It is similar in size like Phyllostychys nigra aureovariegata. Look at the stems, has similar black spots.

I think it’s Nigra as well. Moso’s can’t take the abuse that this thing has been through to get here. But I wouldn’t complain either if it was an edulis. I’d actually be happier haha.

Here’s some more pics.

Good to hear yours is doing well.

Mine is shooting too inside the heated GH. The culms are a small small upsize from last year. Nothing really that’s showing me that’s its nigra yet. I’d like to be able to see nice shoots with the classic nigra look to them.

I’ll post some pics later.

Here’s the new leaves. I’m seeing small shoots still. Probably and upsize of about 2x last year. Still really small though. There is a sulcas and two branches per node right now. Older tiny culms are blackening. The culms are rough to me. Maybe..... soft but more rough.

At this point I’m still clueless on true ID

Looking good m8. I’ve got mine planted in the ground now. Super excited to see what it turns into.

New leaves on the new stems are very decorative. Old leaves turn to green. Plant is growing outside. Has survived -17°C, but carefully covered. NOt vigorous grower. It is weak TC plant. Has many very thin stems.
