I'm going to test the waters of CraigsList and thought I'd post here first in case in area list members want plants. All have been container grown for more than a year and have lots of new rhizome growth.

Bambusa multiplex 'Riverorium' - 2 full 7 gallon pots $60 each
Phy primontina - squat 20 gallon pot full of rhizome $120
Phy nigra 'Henon' - squat 20 very full $100
Phy nigra 'Folsom' clone I believe, very full 25 gallon $100
Phy stimulosa - full 15 gallon pot $70
Phy acuta - 15 gallon $70
Phy rubromarginata - squat 20 gallon $70
Phy aureosulcata 'Aureocaulis' - 15 gallon $80
Phy parvifolia - squat 7 $60
Phy sp. (obtained as prominens, I think it is Shagnhai 3) very full 15 gallon $100
Phy edulis - a rescue Moso, recovered nicely full 15 gallon $80

Fargesia sp. - obtained as Robusta but pretty sure it is dracocephala 'Rufa' 7 gallon $40

I also have several montane species near death and look like crap, will rehome to cooler place N/C.

I have a fair amount of experience re bamboo sales via Craigslist. 1) 90% of customers are looking for bamboo to block out someone or something. 2) Less than 1% are collectors who are looking for something rare. 3) 65% know nothing about bamboo. Lot's of guidance is required. I recommend other plants (non-bamboo) to some people. 4) Most customers don't think about how to transport bamboo home. Ask asap what their mode of transport is. 5) I hold potted plants 4 to 6 months before selling (ref transplant shock). 6) I check retail prices then, knock off 35 to 40%. 6) Re post - Pictures of plant to be sold and pictures of plants at maturity are helpful. Tell a story - was is your bamboo cool or what purpose will it serve? 7) Sales comes at unexpected times - patience is a must. 8) About 5 to 10% are no shows. Rgds
