Re: [APD] Plants that apple snails won't eat...

I have to tell you I had my best chuckle of the day at the thought of trying to find the species for mass retail bamboo. The places where I live that sell bamboo include gift boutiques and Wal-Mart.  Most of the bamboo is formed into interesting shapes and I seriously doubt if the display includes any kind of "distracting" label with "extraneous" information like species, although there may be a calligraphy hangtag telling you about the good luck you'll be gathering from its presence in your home <eye roll>.  What I want to see is someone at one of these stores trying to make a customer satisfied by identifying species.  Yes, I'm evil but I'm afraid I'm working overtime and can't go to the mall this week.  Anyone game?

both just say bamboo. They don't know the species. Sorry.
