About a year

Post by needmore »

Most of these have been in ground right around a year, a couple a tad longer, a couple a tad less. All were mostly 1 gal size, couple were 3's.

It's hard to favor anything over the Sacred Bali, it just keeps shooting and upsizing in a tight clump and those yellow culms & dark green hanging leaves are stunning in person. The 'not really B nana' is right there with it though.

It kind of sucks here, I'm a bamboo collector and am having trouble finding new species I want. I have around 38 I think and I know a supplier with 80 but most are not that interesting so until I can uncover the bamboo person with the rare mix, I'm converting to a palm guy, currently with 75 species of palm...nearly 2x my bamboo!

You might as well do a full confession -- you're a Colocasia/Alocasia guy too. 50 types of those?

Heaven's no, only 18 or so but man there are lots of other aroids I can grow. And, um, thus far among hundreds of other things, I've planted 90+ cycads of a few different forms.

One of my unknown types is pushing 3' shoots at about 18 months, I think it might be D brandseii instead of G atter, first photo is shortly after buying it.

Got one of my moso seedlings to have the golden yellow groove which is the exact inverse of the bicolor but it also happened to have variagated leaves too. Oddly unlike the previous gold stripe variations I've grown a decade ago, this one appears to be more vigorous than the plain green ones.

This is however nowhere near as exciting as tropical clumpers. This is a half of my original dencrocalamus asper hitam black bamboo which in after a year of moving away and being dug into a sunny spot on a mountain with nothing around it managed to put out an unreal upsize.

My Hitam looks about like yours except for the big shoot so far.
