Bambusa lako ( Black Bamboo )

Today I removed my Bambusa lako ( Black Bamboo ) seeds from the polystart mix I put them in yesterday and placed them into an incubator. The Bambusa lako or Black Bamboo is from Indonesia. Click here to see a full grown Black Bamboo. The Black Bamboo can grow over 40 ft. tall and stands up to hurricanes very well. The internodes of the Black Bamboo turn a glossy black. For now here are some pictures of the seeds.
