Try going to a fishing tackle shop.  Bamboo poles used by kids are from a
type of bamboo that is honey in color when alive.  The color fades as it
dries out, or when soaked in water, but doesn't turn grey.  Grey bamboo
(when dry or soaked) is usually green when alive.

I saw some pictures once of  tank that had a forest of what seemed to be bare 
bamboo stakes, almost like bare wood. They were as thin as chopsticks but 
neatly arranged in a carpet of hair grass. 

Does anyone know what kind of bamboo stakes I can use? These were honey 
colored. The ones for the terrestrial garden turn grey. Can you use those in 

Also does anyone have info on real underwater bamboo and what that looks like?
