It is in a pot about 2' across and 2' high, the plant is about 10' tall,

It has more than half a dozen lovely shiny black stalks thicker than your thumb.

Come and get it.

Yes but too much work for us Ed. We are dividing and giving away all of the time.

And they need too much water in the pots or the leaves curl and look bad.

We would not put a big bamboo in a pot again. Only a small clumper, and that would still be better in the ground if we had the choice.
