Imagine that bamboos flowered every year. You could grow loads of them
from seeds. As it is, you can split a plant every 1 - 5 years
(sometimes more!) to get a new plant. That takes a fair amount of time
and effort, and hence the high price. Bear in mind that plantings from
established groves require a fair amount of attention to ensure that
they survive, and even so there can be a significant failure
