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.
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.
Before you a lot your available space to planting bamboo it would first be wise to know more about this plant. Bamboo is actually grass. It grows best in tropical countries but bamboo plants are now gaining popularity even in countries with non-tropical climates. The bamboo plant grows differently depending on the specific kind. Some grow to a reasonable size while others can expand growth both horizontally and spatially. You have to know the kind of bamboo that you will be getting so you do not find yourself with a kind that takes up too much of your available space.
Another unique feature of this particular type of bamboo is that it can withstand much colder temperatures than other bamboo types. This could be as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit below zero! This is certainly impressive considering the fact that other types cannot even come close to this figure. Furthermore It is also a good choice to grow in areas that are windy or have very little shelter for the plant. Where other bamboo types would struggle to stay alive and lose their leaves to the winds an arrow bamboo continues to thrive without any harm.
