Trivial question: bamboo seed

Amazon has some bamboo seed. Two or three kinds. I haven't studies bamboo since the 1960s but it was my impression that bamboo from seed was ridiculous, took half a lifetime. Were my professors wrong or is Amazon trying to make fools of us?

General comments about growing bamboo from seed (1) Many of the species flower once every 100 years (2) To germinate seed do not cover seeed soil temp for germination 65-75F (3) seed MUST be "fresh" and most of the seed is steril
Division still best method
