Drinker caterpillars

After watching a drinker caterpillar shed its skin on oregano Silke found over a dozen on this stripey grass. Any port in a storm?  No native coarse grasses in our little garden though I am working on that...


  1. Does your plant look like a bamboo Liz? Drinker feed on it with no problem so I would think they will be happy with your stripy 'thing'.

  2. It is indeed a bamboo, I think Pleioblastus viridistriatus: I grow it too, but alas no drinkers on it!
