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.
As a seasoned bamboo expert I know for a fact that there are immense bamboo types available throughout the world. Scientifically there are known to exists over 1200 different types of the plant and its scientific name is Gramineae bambusinae. The main identifying element or characteristics for differentiating amongst all these varieties is its flower. Another little know fact about the plant is that it is a member of the grass family. Such an incredible amount and variety of bamboo types are broadly classified as per their type species and variety.
