This is Black Bamboo. Bambusa Lako, or rather Timor Black Bamboo. It was brought to us by Robert Soporito, the owner of Tropical Bamboo, a bamboo nursery in Loxahatchee, Florida.
The villa has all sorts of tropical plants, but it does not have bamboo. Robert just visited the villa and brought this beautiful bamboo plant which is the beginning of our bamboo forest.
Watch this video, listen to the sound of the wind and the sound of bamboo bumping into each other.
Check out Robert's website: Tropical Bamboo Plants. He exports to Puerto Rico.
