This contest is fueled by the following news: Bamboo (Latin: Bambusoideae) is a large subfamily of Poaceae family of plants. Around 1200 types are found in the subfamily. There are two basic types of bamboo, which simultaneously represent two taxonomic tribes: Bamboos tribe: representatives of lignifying plants with slender, frequently branching, often with long stems, hollow, delicate crowns, grass-like leaves and sometimes with gigantic flowers. Olyreae tribe (lat. olyreae): plants, which grow as "regular" grass, form brushwood and are lignifying; as a rule, given plants rarely grow above one meter in height. Description: Growth and development of some types: Practically all bamboo reach huge sizes (for instance: Dendrcalamus brandisii can grow up to 38 m, in this case, circumference of stem reaches 80 cm, i.e. around 25 cm in diameter). Ordinary bamboo blossoms once in 25 years, abundantly and simultaneously on large territories; bamboo forms fruits and then dies off completely or only its ground sprouts die but rhizome is preserved. Gigantic bamboo "Bambusa gigantea" blossoms once in 30 years. In India and China, Bambusa tulda grows up to 22 m in a single month. In the Amazon basin, bamboo "Bambusa latifolia" has broad leaves and it is an integral part of aboriginal flora. Poecilophyllous types of bamboos were brought to Europe from China and Japan; amongst which, "Bambusa fortunei", a Japanese undersized bamboo is especially popular as decorative plant. Bamboo is characterized by accelerated growth and the record growth of 120 cm in one day was observed in madake (Phyllostachys bambusoides). While cultivating bamboo as decorative plant, it is necessary to remember that the given plant is characterized by highly developed rhizomes and hence, it is capable of "occupying" a big area within a shortest period of time. In order to avoid such "growth", it is advised, before planting, to create special barriers in the ground in order to stop the growth of rhizomes. Usage: Food product: Young bamboo shoots (culms) are used in food as vegetables. Bambusa, Dendrocalamus and Phyllostachys types are frequently used in food. Bamboo shoots (culms) are used in traditional Eastern medicine. Similar to oats, bamboo grains can also be used in food. Bamboo - staple food of the Big Panda. Construction material: Houses can be constructed using rigid, light-weight and strong bamboo. Long ago the entire capital of Thailand used bamboo floats. Bridges and water pipelines were also constructed from bamboo. Horticulture: Bamboo is one of the main elements in Chinese horticulture. It is also acquiring huge popularity in European gardens. Household articles: Bamboo is used for making furniture. Hats, woven baskets and window shades, chop sticks for eating and many more things can be made from bamboo. The citizens of Java use bamboo for making "dishes" and also as food - young bamboo shoots (culms) are roasted in bamboo bends on charcoal. Bamboo is used as writing material and as paint brushes in China. In the middle ages, containers to store loose items and flask-type things for liquids were made from thick bamboo pipes. Various types of woven things and even upper clothes are made from split bamboo. Canes and handles for umbrellas were prepared in Europe for a long time. Bamboo fishing rods and skiing sticks are quite popular. In the end of the 19th century, even bicycle frames were manufactured from bamboo in the USA. Bansphor caste (from bans - bamboo), which is a closed community of craftsmen, specialized in making bamboo articles in India. Bamboo musical instruments: Various types of musical instruments were made using bamboos in some countries, especially in China, Indonesia, Japan, India and Tahiti islands. For instance, the flute the "Shakuhachi" in Japan and the Bansuri in India are manufactured from bamboo. However, the use of bamboo is not restricted only to wind instruments, it is also used to manufacture stringed and percussion musical instruments. Weapon: Bamboo was used and is still used to manufacture various types of weapons: air gun, poles, arrows, arrow tips and spears. It was also used as an agonizing tool of sustained punishment. The person to be executed is tied over a cut tip. Bamboo would grow and pierce the punished. Raw material: In China, the major part of paper was produced from bamboo culms and bamboo fiber, produced in Jamaica, is the main raw material for North American paper industries. Cultural significance: Numerous symbolic meanings are associated with bamboo. For example, it symbolizes longevity in China and is the symbol of friendship in India. In the Philippines, farmers put bamboo crosses in plantations as a talisman, which brings fortune. In Japan, positive concepts are associated with bamboo. Since bamboo grows straight and has fresh green culms and leaves, it is considered as a sign of cleanliness in Japan. Along with branches of pine and blossoming cheery trees, bamboo is a symbol of the land of the rising sun. These three plants are not just symbols of fortune but are also used for designating the high quality of sushi. At the end of the year, each entrance of a Japanese home is decorated with a bunch of pine branches and bamboo culms (kadomatsu) and according to beliefs in Japan, these decorations bring happiness in the new year. Bamboo was a favorite item for the majority of Chinese artists. Wen Tong (1019-1079 sung era) was one of the most acclaimed masters of bamboo painting. Since bamboo blossoms are very rare and its seeds are used in food, predominantly during a famine, the bamboo blossoms are interpreted as a famine precursor in some cultures.
