does new growth size depend on bamboo or time in ground???
First I want to say that this forum has lots of great info. And that as you might be able to tell, I'm very new to bamboo growing. I'm trying to better understand how the whole growth process works.
If I plant a bamboo type that grows 4inch round, does it grow to the 4inch round in one year or does it take a few years.
Meaning...I plant bamboo that can grow to 4inch round. But the plant is only about 1inch round. Does this mean next year's shoots will be alittle bigger, say 2inches thick and the next year's shoots will be 3inches...and so on.
Last question...If I plant a full grown 4inch thick and 15 feet tall bamboo...would next years shoots be 4inch thick also?
I hope someone will be able to help explain how this works. Thanks in advance for your time.
