We’ve all being told how or have heard of how long it takes for a bamboo to crop out of the soil. It takes almost eternity: 3 to 5 years. But few really make mention of what happens afterwards. Being a rare form of a grass, some bamboo species can grow as fast as 1 metre every 24 hours (usually the species in the Vietnamese forest). These species tend to grow fast the longer they grow from the ground and reach incredible heights in a matter of weeks. They are able to bypass plants which sprout out within 3 days of planting and meet up with trees that have gained their heights in decades. Bamboo also have many uses and it has incredible strength.
