Description

A lot of people think that bamboo is a tree because it grows so tall. It also has a trunk with leaves and branches sprouting from it.
Bamboo is not a tree, it is a grass. Scientists have found that it has much more in common with the lawn in front of your house than it does with any trees growing in the forest.
Which is stronger, a pound of bamboo or a pound of steel?
How does bamboo spread?
When a bamboo plant fruits, why does it bring starvation to the surrounding area?
How fast can bamboo grow?

Find out more about this amazing plant, and surprise your family and friends with these fun facts.

Ages 8 and up.
All measurements in American and metric.
