Bamboo, in the true grass family, is one of the fastest growing plants on Earth with reported growth rate of 100 cm (39 in) in 24 hours.  However, the growth rate is dependent on local soil and climatic conditions as well as species, and a more typical growth rate for many commonly cultivated bamboos in temperate  climates is in the range of 3-10 cm (1-4 inches) per day during the growing period.  Primarily growing in regions of warmer climates  during the late Cretaceous period, fast fields existed in what is now Asia.  Some of the largest timber bamboo can grow over 30 meters (98ft) tall, and be as large as 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) in diameter.  However, the size range for mature bamboo is species dependent, with the smallest bamboos reaching onlyseveral inches high at maturity.  A typical height range that would cover many of the common bamboos grown in the United States is 15-40 feet, depending on species.  Unlike trees, individual bamboo culms emerge from the ground at their full diameter and grow to their full height in a single growing season of 3-4 months. During these several months, each new shoot grows vertically into a culm with no branching out until the majority of the mature height is reached . Then the branches extend from the nodes and leafing out occurs.  In the next year, the pulpy wall of each culm or stem hardens.  During the third year, the culm hardens further.  The shoot is now considered a fully mature culm.
