Indian Thorny Bamboo is a soft, thick-walled bamboo which grows very fast
and tall. The shoots are edible. Thorny lower branches are long and wiry.
Leaves are lanceshaped, 7-18 cm long, 1-1.8 cm wide, with a long-pointed
tip. Clump bamboos have underground stems that sprout vertical shoots much
closer to their parent plants, growing slowly outward. Thick wall with
flexibility comes in useful for construction materials, scaffolds, and
handicrafts. Indian Thorny Bamboo is native to India and China.
