the bamboo man does have nice bamboo in his own garden, but the ones he has for sale are disappointing. also if you don't know exactly what kind of bamboo you want to buy, well good luck. the owner tries to rush you and will not give you time to think about what you want and will get angry with you for wasting his time. he wants very much to sell you his bamboo but you must choose quickly, well I'm sorry but I need time to decide what kind I really want for after all it is a big investment one you only want to make once and right the first time. so no I can not recommend the Bamboo Man.
