Abstract
Promotion of cultivation of both indigenous and exotic bamboo species in Kenya has lagged behind the general development programme of other forest-based species. Few clumps of Bambusa vulgaris Schrad. ex Wend exotic to Kenya from India, are however scattered in residential places as ornamental within the city of Nairobi. A plot of the species and one of Oxytenanthera abyssinica Munro were planted at the Muguga Arboretum in the 1960s and their growth has b~en followed (Kigomo and Kamiri, 1985, 1987; Kigomo, 1988). None of these, however, has been put into field cultivation by the Kenya Forest Department or private farmers.
