Bambusa Tuldoides!

January 10, 2013. By dk. 0 comment(s).

Received an early Christmas present when a friend introduced to (what we think is) a forest of bambusa tuldoides. Most bamboo in Ghana is bambusa vulgaris - which is more knobby and grows twice as big. Dropped 300 culms selected across both species for maturity on site at Berekuso Hill Station on the 24th. Heading back up this weekend to check-in on drying process and for some more full-size model-making: including joint mechanisms for bamboo canopy and first up of the bamboo robots, a waterbot for smart drip irrigation with an Arduino uno brain.
