The length between two nodes varies from species to species and these internodes are usually hollow and are covered by sheaths in the early stages of growth however as the plant grows these sheaths fall off and become a mulch that is ideal for providing vital nutrients for the growing plant.The internodes play an important part in transporting water and nutrients upwards this is done by sophisticated vertically arranged cells located within the internodes. Distinctively then the cells within the nodes are positioned horizontally thus enabling transverse movement of water and nutrients along its branches
The rhizome is the underground stems of the bamboo plant it is the Rhizomes which produce the culms. The rhizome is bulbous in its appearance with each individual segment of the rhizome tapering towards its end to form a neck which connects to its other segments. The rhizome has roots that emerge from its nodes and it is these roots that forage for food and nutrients from the soil. These nutrients are stored by the rhizomes and used in the plants periods of dormancy for new growth.
