if you look on my profile, you can see what I am looking for... pretty much any species I dont have is fine, but I am trying to double up on some of the clumpers as well, so if I have it, ask anyway! specificly, also looking for
Ps. japonica Tsutsumiana (my tiny plant was a victim of a horrible gopher attack)
Other japonica forms


I can let you know whats what when you PM me- I have several types for trades, although some need to stabilize for a while.

Thanks!

Hmm I have a 25 Gal planter of Arrow 12-16 foot with 12 mature culms and shoots emerging now.
But you have that.

That image surprised me. Does 'Tsuboi' put out more white leaves as it gets older? The small plant I have doesn't have *any* indication of having leaves that aren't green with the white stripe down the center.

from what I have seen on the one I have in the ground, and the ones I potted, the highly varigated leaves dont come out until the plant has established some. growinghabit (marci), who I got mine from saw the same thing happen to hers- it was georgeous, then she read somewhere that you should mow all pleos, so she did, and then it took a while for the plant to regain its former splendor.... the early leavs with just the white center stripe are pretty typical, but it wont stay that way long- its a pretty quick growing little plant!

I remember seeing those photos somewhere (here?), and thinking they were really nice! Not just from a bamboo perspective, but from an overall garden photo perspective. Were those posted on this forum, or the bamboocraft forum? Seems like such a long time ago that I saw those. =)

(Sorry to hijack the thread -- we're supposed to be talking about exchanges here.)

I have seen several really nice photos of Tsuboi... and some really bad ones! in my opinion, to get good looking Tsuboi, I agree with Paul Whittaker- in taming the dragon he recomends only rhizome pruning or other activity on one side of the grove, so you are not disturbing it too much. I think marci would agree after seeing what hers has gone through.

and I dont mind the hijack... someone might have something they want to trade for some Tsuboi now :wink:

Most Pl. generate more white in their leaves when they are pruned, especially in winter. I cut mine back 2 to 3 times a year to get max white color. Pl. s. tsuboi is a beautiful plant and needs less prune to get the white/green variegation. The white variegation gets burned quickly if it gets too much sun. Pl. can't be exposed to more than 1/2 sun and does best in a less sun zone. Rgds
