Family: Poaceae (grass)
Bamboo is a group of perennial evergreens in the true grass family.
It is the fastest-growing woody plant on Earth;
It has been measured surging skyward as fast as 121 cm (48 in) in a 24-hour period, and can also reach maximal growth rate exceeding one metre (39 inches) per hour for short periods of time.
However, this astounding growth rate is highly dependent on local soil and climatic conditions.
Unlike trees, all bamboo have the potential to grow to full height and girth in a single growing season of 3–4 months.
There are about 90 genera and 5000 species of bamboo.
