'Mahvelous' purple bamboo

My one gallon Yushania boliana, a clumping bamboo, looks 'mahvelous' with its nice purple-red culms. Growing these in the hot house has done wonders.  Even with the fairly weak sun exposure during the winter and the cold nights, the heat that is captured inside seems to have accelerated root development and kept the top foliage looking fresh and green. Can't wait to see what these look like in April 2012 when they emerge from the hot house.
