Tanakae has many of the same characteristics of other bambusoides which makes it great for woodworking, and wood crafts.  Beyond woodworking, this is a decorative bamboo marked by its green canes with purple spots.  Although lovely to look at, the spots are actually caused by bacteria-which is not harmful to the bamboo, but does take some of the illusion of beauty away from it.  The spots don’t appear until the bamboo has hit maturity and since  this bamboo is not a particularly fast growing variety, this can take some time.
