The Bamboo Plant - Arundinaria Gigantea

Bamboo is a perennial, flowering evergreen plant. It's a member of the grass family. There are about 5,000 species of bamboo. They range from 98-foot tall giant bamboo to plants only a few inches tall. The name bamboo is derived from the Kannada word Bambu. The English called it bamboo when they encountered it in Malaysia. Bamboo grows faster than almost any other plant on the planet. Some grow as much as 35 inches within 24 hours. The bamboo plant is found in climates ranging from freezing cold to very hot. 

 

 Bamboo plants are versatile. They can be used for food, to build fences or barriers, as decoration, as good luck charm, and much more. With more compressive strength than brick, concrete, or wood and almost as much tensile strength as steel, bamboo is a very popular building material Africa, Asia, Australia, North and South America, and the Caribbean. The plant rarely grows outdoors in continental Europe.

 A number of companies grow bamboo commercially to make flooring, furniture, bowls, cups, knives, spoons, chopsticks, fishing rods, musical instruments, textiles, paper, surfboards, snowboards, skateboards, and weapons. Bamboo plants are also used in Chinese and Indian medicine. 

 

 Bamboo species flower infrequently. Some bamboo plants go as long as 130 years without flowing. Plants taken from the same cohort will flower at the same time, even if they are moved to different geographic locations and climatic conditions. Researchers say bamboo plants seem to have some type of mysterious evolutionary alarm clock, which tells all the plants in the same cohort when to flower and when to die. Flowering bamboos produce many seeds, and bamboos are aggressive early succession plants. They quickly filled in the space vacated by their parents and spread even more.

 

 Bamboo plants are a food source for humans, giant panda, red panda, bamboo lemurs, African mountain gorillas, elephants, chimps, and many insects. Cooked, pickled, or fermented bamboo shoots are a popular delicacy throughout Asia. Lucky bamboo used in Feng shut is actually a type of lily which grows in tropical rainforests in Africa and Southeast Asia. 

 

 Bamboo is designated as the national plant of St. Lucia. In China and Japan, bamboo is more than just a plant. It's an important part of their culture

Bamboo Plants Are Easily Grown 

Bamboo plants are a garden plant of the evergreen variety. They are easy to care for and do not require a lot of water. They are used in gardens in many ways and add an exotic feel to any backyard. They can be used as a hedge or screen to add privacy to your yard or in any number of garden arrangements. Bamboo can grow in almost any type of climate and can last for many years. They come in a wide range of sizes, which include dwarf bamboo and timber bamboo, which is giant-sized. Running bamboo grows rapidly and can spread over a wide range, and this has caused many people to believe that all bamboo is not good for gardens. The right type must be planted in order for you to be able to maintain its growth. A variety called clumping bamboo is much more suited to backyard gardens. It grows slowly and does not spread.

 

 Bamboo plants can also be grown in small containers inside the home as well as outside. Placing a number of them in your landscaping will help you to showcase your other garden plants. They are also known by many cultures to bring luck to their owners. They have also been grown to become bonsai trees. The stems are easily shaped and can be pruned to interlace with each other. Bamboo trees can also be pruned back into topiaries. The under leaves are removed, leaving only clumps of leaves at the top. When planting bamboo trees as a screen, they should be planted in the area approximately 2 to 3 feet apart. This allows them to spread out and create the coverage you need. Pruning them back will stop any further growth into areas you do not want it. Once they have been planted, they will require very little maintenance.

Bamboo Plants 

Bamboo plants are a type of evergreen perennial plant. The word bamboo is from an Indian word, Bambu. Over time the name was eventually introduced to English speaking nations where it became the word bamboo.

 

 Bamboo plants are of high economic value in Asian countries where the plants are often used as building materials. According to studies, bamboo can withstand more pressure than wood or brick. Even today, bamboo scaffolding is used in countries like China and Hong Kong.

 

 In ancient China, bamboo fibers were used to make paper. Bamboo pulp is still used to make paper today in countries such as China, Thailand, and India.

 

 Bamboo is also used in Asia as a food source and raw material to make other products. Several types of pandas, lemurs, gorillas, chimps, and elephants, will also eat bamboo shoots. The Chinese use bamboo in several medicines; the plant is used to treat the infection. In India, bamboo is used to treat fertility problems and menstrual issues.

 

 The plants are found in a variety of climates, including those that are somewhat cold to hot areas. Bamboo can be found in Asia, North Australia, India and parts of China and Africa. Bamboo can also be found in parts of the southern United States as well as in large parts of South America. Bamboo does not grow naturally in Europe.

 

 Some types of bamboo can grow extremely fast. Certain plant species can grow up to three feet in a day! Bamboo plants can grow to be almost 10 feet tall; plant diameter can be nearly 10 inches around. However, the overall rate of growth experienced by a plant depends on a variety of factors. These include temperature, soil health, and the type of plant.

 

 Most varieties of bamboo will die if temperatures dip too much. Some types can survive in cold temperatures as low as 20 degrees below zero. At that temperature, the plant parts above the ground will be killed. The rhizomes below the earth will survive and send up new bamboo shoots the following spring. In some areas, very hardy varieties of bamboo may remain healthy all year long.
