Bamboo has to be close to being the world’s most useful plant:
Good for building, good for fishing poles, good for fences, good for support stakes, good to eat, good for burning in a rocket stove, good for curtain rods, good for making mats, good for almost everything.
Yet people hate it.
I don’t get the people that are so scared of “invasive” plants. That fast-growing tendency means you get higher yields faster. Maybe you want lame plants that take like 10 years to grow. I don’t. I want fast production of useable material!
Bamboo is the bomb.
