Default Bamboo

Anyone else buy any of this stuff? Supposed to be hard to kill, So I bought a few from the chineese guy, then more at another store (3x size for 50 cents less!). Anyone else have any of this?

If you are talking about the plant, it is very aggressive. It spreads very fast and can send out shoots 6' from the main plant. It makes for a great screen planting, but if not maintained the stalks will bend and it will look messy. Depending on the variety it can grow to 40' tall. I don't recommend planting it.

I have a fe wstalks in my office at work. IT 's nice stays greeen all year round. But I tried to plant it in my yard at home as a natural fence. It kept dying on me I was told it's got to stay wet to survive? A guy around me has it as his fence at the rear of his yard I love it.

Philadelphia might be a little too far north for the stuff. Anybody ever try burning it? Pretty entertaining stuff!

I second what Pure Energy said..don't plant it in your yard. My in-laws planted some to screen the view of the nieghbor's garage. Within a year, it basically took over.
Worse than ivy, and I didn't think that was possible.
BTW - this was in NJ, so Philly isn't too far north for it to grow.
