The bamboo (bamboo in English) identifies a group of plants in the family of grasses.
The Bambusoideae (subfamily of bamboos) has about 1400 species, 100/101 genera and is divided into two groups: woody bamboos (Bambuseae) and herbaceous bamboos (Olyreae).
InItaly the most widespread and well-known genus is the giant bamboo (Phyllostachys edulis) also known as Moso.
The giant bamboo forest, also known as bambuseto, is a rapid and sustainable cultivation in which to admire the power of nature.
The characteristics that arouse most curiosity with respect to bambooare its growth and flowering.
This plant, in fact, grows quickly, up to 10 cm per day. Guiness, from this point of view, was reached in Japan where a sample of bamboo reached one meter in height in just one day.
Compared to flowering, however, bamboo is very slow. Some species of bamboo flower after 100 years and sometimes, due to the stress caused by this action, the bamboos die.
This plant is versatile and used in many sectors and by many companies: in food, fashion, design, furnishings and wellness treatments through the bathing forest.
Being a natural and eco-sustainable plant, it can replace polluting materials such as plastic.
