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.
Such canes can last for 10 years and usually stop growing after the 60 day period although they keep on putting up new foliage every year. Overall for a plant to grow fully it takes about 4-15 years although this is highly dependent upon the types and environment soil sunlight and watering conditions.

More bamboo products will be available for average consumers than just athletes for example. Naturally replenishing with its dense durable quality bamboo is an eco-friendly versatile highly renewable resource and a sustainable ecologically responsible green alternative to hardwoods.
