Hello all:

That shoot knows what it is doing...

Looks like the culm leaf blades are crinkled. Nice nuda effect going on there. Either my eyes are getting better or it's your photography.

:lol: yeah , some of my photos are a little less than clear. I try my all with my old school no zoom 1.3 megapixel. I was thinking about going new school this year, but bought alot of cool plants instead. I'm letting my olympus chug along for one more year(or 2?) for its grand finale. It still can take pics to share with everyone, to at least get an idea of what's going on. 8)

I'll be able to take some better pics sometimes in the summer when 5megap is present. :idea:

BooKing, that's a great idea to document the Rutger's grove shoot fest. It will be really cool to see some pix from that. Hope you can share some of those or maybe they'll wind up on the Rutger's website. Hope so.

Believe it or not, this is a photo I took of nuda...

I guess it goes to show that a bamboo shoot can have many faces.

I noticed that it has a sandpaper feel to the it. Your super-closeup details what I feel. Is that described in any book for identification purposes>? :?:

Yep, it is described by McClure in Bamboos of the Genus Phyllostachys, Agr. Handbook 114, USDA. (BTW, you can download this in .pdf from ABS) http://www.americanbamboo.org/BooksOnBamboo.html The link is at the bottom of the page.

The wording is tricky:
Quote:
culm sheaths grayish wine, farinose [mealy, powdery], scabrous [short stiff hairs] but not pubescent [short, soft hairs], the margins glabrous, basal ones blotched with wine, the upper ones immaculate...
