These large stalk-like plants that have clusters of green leaves are found both extreme heat and cold climates as they’re fairly versatile. Some of the tallest of Bamboo plants have been known to grow over ninety-eight feet tall when left to grow in the wild, however, some plants only reach about seven feet in height. It takes roughly three to four months for one plant to grow and reach full maturity. This is also dependent on the climate and areas in which the bamboo is grown as to the actual lifespan each plan survives.
