Bamboo grows fast; it is the fastest growing plant on earth. It grows two inches per hour.
And bamboo grows everywhere--it can grow at sea level all the way up to 12,000 feet. There are more than 1,500 species of bamboo. It grows on every continent. It likes it wet or dry; bamboo can handle from 30-250 inches of annual rainfall. The only places it doesn't grow are the North and South Poles.
Bamboo stalks mature in just three to five years. Most commercial tree species take 25-70 years to mature, which causes a bit of a problem-it's hard to replenish them at the same rate we cut them down. A bamboo grove also releases 35% more oxygen than the same size stand of trees.
