Miniature Weeping Bamboo


Although it wasn't the most striking bamboo I've seen in Mexico, this miniature weeping bamboo sure has potential. I imagine in the rainy seasons it looks much better than this stressed, dry season condition pictured. It also makes me wonder if it is in cultivation as it could be quite a handsome accent plant growing in a pot on a patio.




Stumbling upon little things like this always makes trips interesting. Especially since there weren't nearly as many or as diverse of bromeliads as I was expecting on the side of the Volcán Colima!
