A striking plant from Indonesia. Similar in height to Timor Black (Bambusa lako) but not quite as vertical.
Though the canes are not as highly polished as Timor Black, they turn a deeper black more quickly.
Absolutely gorgeous as well as being multi-use. The shoots are edible but are more likely to be used for musical instruments or construction as they are excellent quality lumber. Attains heights of 40-60 feet, with canes to 4” in diameter.
