Bamboo grown in Japan

Bamboo trees are also the fastest growing trees in the world.[2] They are capable of growing 60 cm (24 in.) or more per day due to a unique rhizome-dependent system. However, the growth rate is dependent on local soil and climatic conditions.

Bamboos are of notable economic and cultural significance in East Asia and South East Asia, being used for building materials, as a food source, and as a versatile raw product.


  1. Bamboo is in the grass family.The person that posted the statement in the lime green stating that they are tree's is incorrect,though that is very understandable. They DO resemble trees more than grass.
