Fact of the Day: Fast Bamboo

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It can even grow three feet in a twenty-four hour period.

  1. How interesting, I didn't know that. I knew that it was a durable & flexible material, but not that it grew so fast. Thank you for stopping by my blog, and leaving me a kind comment!

  6. It is also used in torture..........prisoners have been know to be tied over it and it will grow into their skins.
    This was used in WW2 in the Pacific theatre and in subsequent conflicts in that area..........Vietnam comes to mind.

  7. I've seen bamboo run amok in my grandmother's yard in Nova Scotia. It's more aggressive than raspberry canes.
