General information about Bamboo:
Bamboo are found in all tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world especially in Asia and South America.
In the Philippines they grow in all parts of the archipelago, such as on the shores, plains, forest, hillside and mountains.
Bamboo is one of the most common materials used in house construction, furniture-making and in manufacturing other useful materials.
The stems or culms of bamboo are cylindrical and generally hollow and separated by partitions into joints.
These partitions are known as nodes. Thickness of the culms and the length of the internodes vary greatly in different species. The space between nodes is called internodes.
Shoots are generally developed at the beginning of the rainy season.
The young shoots grow very rapidly and reach their full growth in height and thickness. In most species the plant assumes a featherly appearance.
The culms are not considered mature until their branches are fully formed. The number of shoots produced yearly from each clump of bamboo varies with the vigor of the individual plant and the habits of the species. The mature age of most species is considered to be 30 years. The larger species produce 12-20 culms and the smaller ones 30-50 culms.
Some species of bamboo have larger leaves and others small ones, but variations in the size of the leaves may occur in some clumps and species of bamboo. Neither size, shape or the number of veins in the leaf can be taken as invariable.
Many species of bamboos bear flowers once and then die. Some flower after a great interval of time. The flowers usually appear only after the bamboo is full leaf and in the majority of cases, the leaves drop off as the inflorescence continue to form. The flowers may cover the branches or only the bracelets.
They may be few or very numerous.
