It's the 7 years I'm having trouble accepting addict. The flower then die bit proved itself true over the last few years with another species
Maybe it was just with those particular ones at the time.
I was on another gardening forum and mine and several others on there all flowered in the same year. Some bamboo expert guy said that that was why. Then a couple of years later it happened to some other people on the forum and they had bought theres all around the same time and it was about 7/10 years with theirs. We were from all over the world not just England so does seem to happen in waves depending on which colony your plant was raised from. I am no bamboo expert by any means I am just going on what happened to mine and theirs.
What was the other species you mentioned?
