Bamboo is essentially a grass. Bamboo can grow 1 meter per day and the taller it becomes, the faster it grows. Though flexible enough to be woven, bamboo has a higher tensile strength than steel. Able to be eaten when young, old bamboo is strong enough to make furniture and pipes which last a life time. Bamboo has a rather bizarre flowering lifecycle, flowering infrequently, sometimes only once every 100 years. When flowering does occur, it occurs on a massive scale, followed by the death of all nearby plants
