Gigantochloa apus (Schult.) Kurz, Natuurk. Tijdschr. Ned.-Indië 27: 226 1864. ?;

Bamboo for ID : Delhi : 070512 : AK-2: Bamboo seen at Lodhi Gardens, Delhi on the 3rd of Sept,11.
The picture is of a young shoot that caught my attention.

The mature Bamboos were at a great height.

Very interesting.
Nice design made by leaves on the stem of Bamboo.

I think, this is Gigantochloa apus.

May be close to Gigantochloa apus as per*&Genus=*&s=9

Please post photo of culm sheath of mature culm. Both sides if possible.

The picture was taken a long while ago. I do not have more pictures.

Sir, it is for ID

Well, I have seen this thread earlier, but the booklet (on ngrasses and Bambusa) I have doesn’t feature this species.

No idea

It looks like Gigantochloa apus
