Group Description

The members of Bamboo_World are interested in all aspects of bamboo, including growing, identifying, planting, harvesting, and usage. We want to hear what you think.

You are invited and encouraged to join Bamboo_World. Please tell us about your interest in bamboo when joining.

This a SPAM FREE GROUP, we do not and will not tolerate spammers.

Please be considerate of other members, and practice simple "netiquette".

"Lucky Bamboo" (Dracaena sanderiana) is NOT bamboo and not a subject for discussion on Bamboo_World. There are other groups dedicated to this interesting but Not bamboo plant.

Bamboo is a giant member of the grass family and is predominately an evergreen. Bamboo has thousands of uses ranging from medicine, food, and clothing to fishing poles, boats, and house building. It is the most used woody plant on the earth.

When asking a growing question, please give your location and USDA Zone and Sunset Zone (if you know it) in order for us to better help you, as there are many variables to take into account.

We hope you will find this forum informative, interesting, and fun. All bamboo questions, comments, or observations are invited. You will discover members with large collections, and expert knowledge to bamboo novices just starting their collections. We all have one thing in common which is our interest in bamboo, and our desire to disseminate factual information on this useful, and beautiful plant.

Bill Hollenback is the owner of Bamboo_World, and the creator of Bambooweb.info.
Bambooweb.info offers the web's largest bamboo image gallery with over 4400 images of 470 species.
