This is common bamboo that can be seen in village thicket, mostly around ponds. These photographs were not meant for the running poaceae week, rather i wanted to shoot Lonchura striata (Linnaeus, 1766)!
The bamboo species might be Bambusa bambos (L.) Voss.
Photographs were recorded on 04-04-2013, in Hooghly.
A video can be watched –

attaching two more photographs.


Yes Bambusa bambos

Bamboo seen at Lalbagh Botanical Gardens, Bangalore on 18/3/13.

Just a guess.
Experts kindly validate.

I think this is Bambusa bambos


Yes ; …is right. Bambusa Bambos/Bambusa ArundinaceaThe very common Indian thorny bamboo.


Many thanks for confirmation of id.

Bamboo for identification: 4 images.
Photos taken at Aambyvalley rd., Upper Lonavala Maharashtra in October 21. Huge tree more than 20 ft. but was unable to capture the full tree due to dense vegetation.


Looks like Dendrocalamus strictus. Please upload photo of full clump and back of culm sheath if possible.


Thanks … I will try to get those photos if possible but looks difficult now.


Yes, If those are strong spines, then it could be Bambusa bambos. But need to be confirmed whether they are growing buds or strong spines. But I couldn’t find any auricles on the smaller culm sheaths at the axils. But one needs to check the culm sheaths on the main culm. If … could recall whether it was thorny or not. Another aspect is the glaucous nature of young shoot (bluish powder) which is usually found in Dendrocalamus, but there could be variations as well. Anyway, a photo of the whole plant and culm sheath would help confirm the species.


I think with insufficient details it may not be possible to get correct identification. I will try to get more photos of bamboos in future.
