Default Why is Banboo so expencive?

It's expensive because digging divisions of bamboo is much more difficult
than dividing daylillies. What you're paying for is generally the labor.
Also, some varieties of bamboo have a high failure rate when divided. That
can increase the cost substantially for certain bamboo.

From what I herd is grown very easily, just divide some and move it and it
will begin to grow. I can see pay $5-$10 for some but paying $19-$40 on
ebay is out of price range.
Is there something I don't know about the high price? Please advise.

Thanks,

David
