Bamboo is a plant found in jungles and can be used as fuel for cooking or to breed pandas.The fastest growing plant in the game is bamboo.
The fastest way to break bamboo is with a sword or axe.In Bedrock Edition, a sword breaks bamboo faster than an axe, though not instantly.
Bamboo shoots can’t be obtained through means other than vanilla.They can be obtained through add-ons or inventory editing.They are impossible in Java Edition.
There are many single shoots within the jungle.Large areas of the landscape are covered by the bamboo variant of jungles.
When a panda is killed, it drops 1 bamboo.A panda drops bamboo when it’s killed.The drop is increased by 1 per level.
When a bamboo block is broken, it is also broken.If a piston pushes a bamboo block into its space, it will fall as an item.bamboo can be destroyed by water if it is first placed as a shoot.After growing at least one block taller, it becomes a solid bamboo block that can’t be destroyed by water.Place another bamboo on top of the bamboo shoot to transform it into a block.
Bamboo can be planted on a variety of materials.Each plant grows on average every 4096 game ticks.It grows by 1–2 blocks when bone meal is used.The bamboo can grow up to 16 blocks tall.A light level of 9 or above is needed to grow a bamboo plant.
A sugar cane farm can be adapted to this use since bamboo breaks in the same way.If the harvest is done manually, some spacing is recommended as mature stalks are solid.
Bamboo can be used to speed up the growth of baby pandas.The panda is the only animal in the game that has extra breeding requirements because bamboo can be used to breed them if at least 8 blocks are within 5 blocks of the pandas.The player can feed them bamboo and they will mate to have a baby.
Bamboo can be used as fuel.0.25 items are smelt by each bamboo item.It is possible to make two bamboo into a stick and use that as fuel.With the addition of string, it is more efficient to craft six bamboo into scaffolding, which can smelt 2 items in Java Edition or 6 item in Bedrock Edition, instead of 1.5 items from the original 6 bamboo.
As bamboo grows, it changes in appearance.It takes the form of a small shoot when first placed.The top block has leaves coming off it when it grows to one block taller.At 3 blocks, the top 2 blocks have leaves, and at 4 blocks the bamboo expands to 33 pixels.The top 3 blocks have leaves on them.The leaves move up and down as the bamboo grows.The appearance of the blocks below the block that was destroyed does not change.The block that Bamboo is in has a random orientation.The only plants that change their hit boxes as they grow are bamboo, grass, and sweet berry bushes.
