Ghost Bamboo Dendrocalamus minor var. amoenus part II

Ghost bamboo Dendrocalamus minor var. amoenus is a beautiful tropical clumping bamboo similar to Bambusa with a white bloom covering new growth hence the name Ghost Bamboo[my favorite] or White Bamboo it grows in a tight clump reaching about thirty [30] feet. Mine is about four years old and growing well. I don't do much for it as far as care a little organic fertilizer and a little supplemental watering during our dry months. [winter]

Fascinating photos. This is the one on your header? It's really beautiful. I have the miniature version of black bamboo which isn't doing too well at the moment. I'm amazed by your collection of such unique plants!
