Bambusa gracilis, also known as a "slender weaver" or "ningala bamboo" is a clumping bamboo species in the Bambusinae subtribe (paleotropical) within the Bambuseae tribe (woody bamboos) of the Poaceae family of grasses that was formerly listed as a variety of the species Bambusa textilis. This species is native to Southeastern Asia, especially China, and has been heavily cultivated in Australia and recently the United States of America.


Bambusa gracilis exhibits aerial culms from a single node. The stem is a rhizome with more hollowed internodes with aerial branching with a single bud at each node and culm leaves with sheaths of fimbriae auricles at the summit.

Compared to Bambusa textilis, they will have shoots with smaller diameters (roughly 1/2" in diameter) with more yellowish than dark brown coloration on the internodes. The leaves of Bambusa gracilis are also lacking in the elaborately veined pattern common on the adaxial surface of Bambusa textilis leaves.


Bambusa gracilis is often naturally found near waterways in the range of the tropics and roughly 15 degrees of latitude into the subtropics, usually below 1000 feet of elevation.


Currently listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List.
