Potential candidates: A Phyllostachys I'm fairly certain so eliminate Sem Yash Kimmei

Try to eliminate these two
Phy aureosulcata 'Spectabilis' - if so give the culms an up-rub and feel the sandpapery texture
Phy viridis 'Robert Young' - if so give the culms a rub with your thumb tip and feel dimply texture in rub of any direction

Try to eliminate these two
Phy aurea 'Koi' - look for a node that has that aurea thing where they are fat below the node or find compressed/distorted lower nodes
Phy praecox 'Viridisulcata' - the internodes do not look short enough, I think?

Narrow it down to these two?
Phy bambusoides 'Castillonis - give the culms a rub, none of the above textures then perhaps correct?
Phy vivax one of the yellow forms?

Spectabilis is my guess.

Thanks brad and David ,my first thoughts where Spectabilis but the big culm had the sort of shape of Aurea koi ,there is not redding on culms either which my Spectabilis has but that could be because the culms have not been in sun ,then the slightly variegated leaves made me think bambusoides 'castillonis ' ,I have put the bamboo in the ground in my nursery now as it was in desperate need to get out of that small pot . I will try the things you said brad tomorrow and get back to you

I think it is Spectabilis after all ,I rubbed the culm upward and it had a sandpaper feel
