The bamboo culm is also known as the stem or stalk which generally tends to be a tall woody shoot that emerges from the Rhizome bud this young shoot quickly grows and reaches its full height with 100 days. The height that the Culm reaches in its first year will be its final height. However the Bamboo plant will continue to develop thicker and taller culms. The Culm (stem) tends to be cylindrical in shape which tapers towards the top. The place on the stem where a leafy branch or bud arises marked by a prominent line is known as the Node. As older leaves drop there is a constant regeneration and young leaves are produced these branches and leaves continue to increase in number each year generally the bamboo culm will continue to develop branches until the culm reaches about 7 years old. After this stage the culm should be thinned out of the grove.
Bamboo is one of the most versatile plants in the world. The wood from bamboo is extremely light strong and durable yet it grows far faster than even much softer woods. For all of its marvelous strength as a building material it can also be processed to create some of the softest fabric available today. All of this is in a plant that is also very disease-resistant easy to grow and quite beautiful. For these reasons and more it is quickly becoming a popular choice as a landscape plant. Big bamboo is especially popular as a privacy plant for its extraordinarily quick growth. With a little care it can be an excellent addition to your garden or landscape.
