Anyone have a bamboo plant

I have one and it sits in a glass with water and rocks. I’m supposed to put 1 drop of plant food in it a day. I just had to buy more plant food recently. I bought it in bulk. I got 5 containers of liquid plant food. It’s hard to put just one drop in. Sometimes I feel like I put a lot more than than that.

I forgot to put plant food in it and it died. But if you look after it I reckon it could survive for years. I think bamboo is pretty tough

Here’s the forest of them. They’ve been there since I was five at least because my sister told me there was only seven locations on earth with bamboo plants/trees and they were worth millions of dollars. And I believed her

Edinburgh zoo has a panda which eats special bamboo grown in Holland.

Panda’s must have a strong jaw. That’s all they eat right?

Yeah I think so. But a certain kind only I think. It was a big deal over here getting a panda from China. Made the headline news. Was really good for maintaining good relations between Britain and China.

I used to own a small bamboo plant similar to the one in photo.
It lasted a couple of years.

I wouldn’t want to be a panda, tho. Those creatures have to eat all day long, that would get tiring I imagine.

Glad I’m an ape and can digest higher calorie food for greater effciciency.

Wood in your digestive system doesn’t seem pleasant.
