BAMBOO

Commonly known as Umbrella bamboo

Bamboo, a sub family of the grass family is found mainly in warm and moist tropical and warm temperate climates. It contains some of the fastest-growing plants on Earth, 36ins in 24 hours, though growth in temperate regions is more like 3-10cms (1.2-3.9ins) per day.

Found in tropical and sub-tropical Asia, tropical America, Africa and northern Australia.

Unlike all trees, individual bamboo culms emerge at their full diameter and grow to their full height in a single growing season of 3-4 months. As the clump matures thicker and taller culms emerge each year until the plant reaches its characteristic limit.

Most bamboo species flower infrequently, at intervals as long as 60 or 120 years, These exhibit mass (or gregarious) flowering and any plant derived from the same stock will flower wherever it is located. After flowering the plant dies.
