I found this guy on the internet. I live in Houston, so I called him to arrange an appointment to check out his bamboo. I drove clear across town, at least an hour, but it was well worth it. His backyard was filled with bamboo, hundreds of plants. You could tell that he takes his hobby very seriously. I bought two varieties, giant timber and giant black. The giant timber was a very healthy variety with multiple culms. The giant black was very small even for a one gallon. Both plants are doing well but I have decided to wait to plant the 'giant black' till it grows out a little. This guy was friendly and knowledgeable.
I have ordered plants from Nueces River Groves. These folks are great. My plants were ordered from their web site and picked up during their Spring Fling. The plants were perfect and the people great. You can't beat the prices or the plant quality. These folks are the best and I will do much more business with them.
