Moso or Phyllostachys edulis is a thin walled timber bamboo primarily used for decorative applications. The nodes between segments are thin and easy to knock out making Moso a good choice for crafting bamboo gutters or other applications that require unobstructed tubes or half-rounds. Moso has very straight grain, which makes the canes easy to split into sections. This also makes it more likely that Moso canes will naturally split over time. It is often used for flooring and is the most common bamboo used in the textile industry. Moso Timbers can be used for mostly decorative applications and is a gorgeous addition to any tiki bar.
Bamboo is a natural material with natural variations. Every pole is unique and will vary in color, diameter, and straightness. We do our best to offer the highest quality bamboo available; variations are a natural occurrence and not a product defect. We measure pole diameter from the base end, all poles will taper somewhat towards the top end and the amount varies from pole to pole. All measurements are approximate, industry standard averages.
All bamboo poles are subject to splitting and cracking. We do our best to ship bamboo poles that are not cracked, however bamboo can develop cracks during shipping or storage due to changes on weather and climate. We recommend that poles used for exterior projects be coated with a wood sealing product to reduce cracking and maintain appearance.
