If you are serious about planting bamboo then you might have more sue for the clumping bamboo type. This type grows up and wide as any other plant does but the circumferential growth is more controlled. As long as you do not allow its circumference to grow uncontrollably then its height can also grow with limits. Unless you have a vast expanse of planting space then you should avoid planting the running bamboo. This type of bamboo takes up a lot of ground space as it uses underground rhizomes to expand.
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.
