I live in the midwest and real bamboo is not available nor does it last. Does anyone know where I can get a durable bamboo look-alike so I can build my own bamboo fountain? If that is not possible, I can use real bamboo but it has to be around 3-4 inch in diameter in size. Does anyone know where I can get that?

Thank you!

I tried but so far Google gave me links to decorative bamboo trees. I want big size bamboo.

Thanks! I probably just searched bamboo and not putting faux or artificial in front of it. And yes, I found some but you're right. They're not cheap. I only need one or two. They usually more than what I'm looking for. Anyway, many thanks for all your response. I'd appreciated.

Old post @GBBUDD .

But I was curious about the OPs comment that in the midwest "real bamboo isn't available nor does it last". I know gardeners who grow all kinds of bamboo in the midwest. They're crazy, but they love it! And I use bamboo in my garden for stakes and trellises - I have some pieces that I've used for years. Oh, well. The OP hasn't been around in a long time so I don't think I'll find out what he was thinking!
