The bamboo groves of autumn are so beautiful. Each bamboo tree stands independently, growing straight & tall toward the sky. Yet in the ground out of sight their roots are all interconnected.
Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants on Earth, with reported growth rates of 100 cm (39 in) in 24 hours.

 
But it is seemingly dormant for the first four years.
 
…sometime during the fifth year ..the bamboo tree grows about 90 feet in six weeks.

 
Some of the largest timber bamboo can grow over 30 m (98 ft) tall, and be as large as 15–20 cm (5.9–7.9 in) in diameter.
 
Most bamboo species flower infrequently. …many bamboos only flower at intervals as long as 65 or 120 years. 
 
In the species Phyllostachys bambusoides, all plants of the same stock flower at the same time, regardless of differences in geographic locations or climatic conditions.
