Phyllostachys nigra is one of the most popular black bamboos.

It's been flowering quite often in recent years on small scales, but seeds were very difficult to get. Almost all of them ended up with empty shells. 

This year we finally got around 1000 seeds at hand. These are true nigra seeds, which is different from the moso seeds.
