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
Both the main and secondary branches may in turn bear branchlets. The base of a branch may develop a rhizomatous swelling and root primordium which are useful in vegetative propagation through branch cuttings this can be induced by chopping the culm tops and removing the newly emerging culms from the clump.
