Bamboo Facts

Bamboo is a Grass Not a Tree..Of all grasses, bamboo is the largest and the only one that can diversify into forest.


Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet. It can grow 3 feet in height in 24 hours under appropriate climate conditions. Unlike other woody plants, bamboo reaches maturity after only 3 to 5 years. Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants.

Bamboos are the the largest grasses, sometimes reaching 100 ft (30 m) while the smallest ones have delicate stems no more than 10 centimeters (4 inches) tall.

Bamboo Grows 1 Meter a Day. Having said that, Guinness World Records states that the world record for the fastest growing plant on earth belongs to a certain bamboo species that grows up to 91 cm (35”) per day, which is almost 4 cm (1.5”) and hour, or at a speed of 0.00003 km/h (0.00002 mph).


Bamboo Survived Hiroshima An extraordinary example of bamboo's resilience is the fact that it was the only plant to survive the radiation of the atomic bombings in Hiroshima, Japan in 1945. The incinerating heat destroyed all trees and other plant life, except for one bamboo grove. The grove has since been removed, but culms from the grove are preserved in a museum in Hiroshima.
