Lifecycle of the culm: As each individual culm goes through a five to seven-year lifecycle, they are ideally allowed to reach this level of maturity prior to full capacity harvesting. The clearing out or thinning of culms, particularly older decaying culms, helps to ensure adequate light and resources for new growth. Well-maintained clumps may have a productivity three to four times that of an unharvested wild clump. Consistent with the lifecycle described above, bamboo is harvested from two to three years through to five to seven years, depending on the species.   The culms have internodes that are smooth and cylindrical, but slightly tapering, sheaths are usually not shed, unusually small for bamboo Featuring greenish-yellow canes, these bamboos are best known for their long and slender leaves. Their foliage appears dainty with greyish-green undertones, and unlike many bamboos, it doesn’t need to be snapped or stalked.Growing to a potential H8m x W2.5m it prefers a moist, but well-drained loamy soil and full sun to partial shade. Widely known as Arrow bamboo, Pseudosasa japonica is a huge specimen that is fast growing and can grow to H8m x W4m. Panda, H. (6 October 2011). Bamboo Plantation and Utilization Handbook.

Bamboo pulps are mainly produced in China, Myanmar, Thailand, and India, and are used in printing and writing papers.  Several paper industries are surviving on bamboo forests. Ballarpur (Chandrapur, Maharstra) paper mills use bamboo for paper production. The most common bamboo species used for paper are Dendrocalamus asper and Bambusa blumeana. It is also possible to make dissolving pulp from bamboo. The average fiber length is similar to hardwoods, but the properties of bamboo pulp are closer to softwood pulps due to it having a very broad fiber length distribution.  With the help of molecular tools, it is now possible to distinguish the superior fiber-yielding species/varieties even at juvenile stages of their growth, which can help in unadulterated merchandise production. Bamboo used for construction should be harvested when the culms attain maximum strength and when sugar levels in the sap are minimum, because excess sugar content leads to increased pest infestation. Bamboo species grow faster compared to most forest trees. Bamboo plantations are readily harvested for shorter duration compared to tree plantations.
Bamboo is a symbol of prosperity in Japan, and are used to make New Year's decorations called kadomatsu. Bamboo forests sometimes surround Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples as part of a sacred barrier against evil. In the folktale Tale of the Bamboo Cutter ( Taketori Monogatari), princess Kaguya emerges from a shining bamboo section. For a variegated bamboo, H. tranquillans ‘Shiroshima’ or ‘inyouchikuzoku’ as it is sometimes known, is hard to beat.During Ngô Đình Diệm's presidency, bamboo was the national symbol of South Vietnam, it was featured on the national coat of arms, presidential standard, and South Vietnamese đồng coins at the time. Most bamboo species are native to warm and moist tropical and to warm temperate climates.  Their range also extends to cool mountainous regions and highland cloud forests.
