Is this P Nigra?

Post by miketropic » Sat Aug 31, 2013 3:56 am

A guy at worked offered some bamboo so I went to take a look at it. hen I got there all the canes were a chocolate color and it wasnt very big. His mother was from the Philippines and she brought it over along time ago. The only one that would be hardy here that I would think it would be would be P. Nigra. Im no bamboo expert so can anyone confirm what I dug up is P. Nigra? If its not any ideas on what it could be? I got a good bunch of it.

I'm no expert but the last picture makes me think it might be P.nigra 'Boryana'
