One of the most useful and fastest growing plants in the world. (up to 3 ft in one day! 100cm) In the grass family. Building material and food. It’s the main food source of the Giant Panda, proving itself as a rich complete food source. One of the best sources of silica to strengthen blood vessel walls, reduce wrinkles for healthy skin, reduces arterial inflammation, and prevents artery plaque build up. Strengthens the heart muscle and relaxes blood vessels. You can get it as a powder. (Use bamboo stalk powder, not leaf powder for silica) The best parts to eat are the young shoots (when it’s a young tender plant). Bamboo can grow anywhere, even where it’s 50 below. There are over 200 varieties. Strip off the hard outer shell and cut up the soft insides. Steaming or cooking lessens the bitterness. Remember bitter is good for digestion. Bamboo is an amazing plant. When planted, nothing shows up above ground for 5 years. That’s because all the work is happening underground, building a massively strong root system- then, the fifth year, it shoots up 50 feet into the air like a rocket ! In Asia, they use bamboo to build scaffolding up the side of skyscrapers- that’s how strong it is. It’s so tough, bamboo shoots appeared out of the ground at Hiroshima within days of the atomic blast! "Lucky Bamboo", the curled stems sold in Asian stores is NOT bamboo- it is Dracaena, which is not edible and belongs to water lily family.

The blade is absent for all genera of Bambuseae and early-diverging herbaceous lineages surveyed by Hoshikawa (1969), Soderstrom (1981), and Judziewiez and Soderstrom (1989).
Arm cells are present in all early-diverging lineages examined except for Streptochaeta, two genera of Phareae, a few of Olyreae, two genera of Bambuseae, most Ehrharta, and one genus of Oryzeae.
Among early-diverging lineages, fusoid cells are absent in Phyllorhachideae (not sampled) and in two genera of Bambuseae (not sampled), and are variable in occurrence in Ehrharta and Oryzeae, though absent in all taxa sampled here.

The analyses presented here suggest that among extant grasses, a clade consisting of Anomochloa and Streptochaeta diverged first from the lineage that includes all other grasses, and that Pharus was the next to diverge; further diversification resulted in one of two possible phylogenetic structures: 1) an "early-diverging" Ehrhartoideae, followed by Parianeae, Bambuseae, Olyreae, the PACC clade, and then Brachyelytrum from Pooideae; or 2) a clade consisting of Parianeae plus Bambuseae, followed by Olyreae, a "late-diverging" Ehrhartoideae, Brachyelytrum, and then the PACC clade from Pooideae.

In light of the incongruence between the present analysis and that of ndh F concerning relationships among other major clades, it is reasonable to retain a Bambusoideae that is provisionally circumscribed to include Parianeae, Olyreae, and Bambuseae, until additional phylogenetic evidence becomes available.
