Phyllostachys parvifolia: There are many shoots that are just barely out so I still can't determine their diameter yet since they can still gain a lot of diameter when they are just barely out of the ground. This one looks like it should get over 1 inch.
I realize that parvifolia needs as much energy as possible so I've been watering it, and tieing the bamboo apart to get more sunlight.
Here's the phyllostachys propinqua beijing which is also just barely out.
Phyllostachys aureosulcata spectabilis: This one is showing the best performance so far, nearly doubling it's shoot diameter form last year.
The aureosucata yellow groove rhizome is putting out similar sized shoots.
Here's the bissetii trying to come back.
The phyllostachys nigra is doing exceptionally well this year with a pretty good upsize.
Phyllostachys Dulcis is not doing nearly as well as all the shoots are oncentrated in the same spot, and there appears to be no upsize at all.
Phyllostachys kwangsiensis, no apparant upsize
Fargesia rufa divison
Phyllostachys nigra henon
