Beautiful plant. Can find a smaller version of it in Minor Amenous "Angelmist."

Vigorous grower. Just have to beware of mosaic virus, which infects many of the mei nung's. Take care when repot/dividing/propogating.

This is by far one of the more attractive of the Dendrocalamus family. It does well in southern california and is not as huge as the other members of it genus. It only gets a mere 65 feet tall and in non-tropical areas it will be much smaller about 40-50 feet. It is one of the better ones for people who like to have a larger bamboo that looks nice and is easy to grow.
