Bamboo is one of the world's fastest growing plants. It can grow as much as three feet in a day. One type of bamboo grows to a height of 120 feet. Its stem is tough and hollow. It is a foot thick. Bamboo is actually a kind of grass. But unlike other grasses, most bamboos grow very tall. We use bamboo to make fishing poles and furniture. Tender bamboo shoots are eaten as vegeatbles.
