Qiongzhuea tumidissinoda, some say, Chimonobambusa tumidissinoda
(alias; Big Node Bamboo)
From Western China
This is a rare bamboo. After numerous failures we have built up some numbers. Not so difficult after all.
Can grow to 6 metres tall with culms 2 cm, diameter. It likes humidity, good drainage and a pH of around 6.0. Cold winters? No problemo -20C.
Sought out for its delicious shoots. Preferred for use as walking sticks all over China and for export, hard to find nowdays. It makes a special container plant, with its interesting culms and gentle foliage.
How fast will it grow?
Growth rate will depend a lot on climate, food and water. Small plants are slow to get going, enjoy the wait.
