Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants - if not the fastest - in the world. Some forms of bamboo can grow up to three or four feet a day, and bamboo varies in size from one foot to one hundred feet! There are about a thousand different types of bamboo found in diverse climates from the southeast US to East Asia.
In addition to its use for bamboo rugs and flooring, bamboo is also used in buildings because of its lightweight but durable nature, as decorative and ornamental garden trees, and in Asian dishes. It has also been used as medicine for healing, and others use it for destruction (as a weapon in martial arts). The uses of bamboo are definitely too numerous to comprehensively list here! But a few other uses include furniture and musical instruments.
Bamboo has different meanings to different cultures - and has been used in a variety of symbolic manners. Some say that humanity emerged from bamboo. In China, bamboo is a symbol of longevity because of its long life. In India, it is a symbol of friendship. Bamboo has been used in Japan to ward off evil spirts.
The use of bamboo is environmentally friendly. Because of the speed of its growth, and because it can be harvested without killing the bamboo plant, clear cutting of forests is not required as it is in wood forests. As a testament to its popularity, the American Bamboo Society has over 1,000 members!
