As bamboo culms
are organic materials, it is necessary to cover them with a gold layer in order to make them conductive and obtain good resolution SEM images.
abyssinica seedlings at green house demonstrated that some culms
possessed one or more number of branches developed from the main culm
First is culm
bending-type lodging which occurs when plants fail to resist bending pressure, as is often seen in the upper internodes of rice affected by strong winds and rain.
Samples were made from the culms
in natura to determine the basic density (BD), using the maximum moisture content method, according to the equation 1:
Samples cut from culms
at internodes 6 with dimensions 25 mm x 25 mm x culms
with leaves, stolons, and rhizomes were sectioned fresh or fixed in FAA .
The bamboo plant is divided into three basic parts above ground: the culm
(or main stem), branches, and leaves.
If you are planting in the open, Fargesia nitida is a good choice for windy sites and has attractive purple culms
. It will grow to around 10ft tall and 3ft wide.
All four are similar in habit with culms
that are erect or arching apically and their foliage leaves that are similar in size and form.
Bamboo has an extensive fibrous root system, and new culms
are produced from underground rhizomes.
