Did you know that bamboo is edible? That it can flower after a cycle of a few years, a few dozen years, and even a century? That it holds the record for growth rate?

Bamboo, a huge and resistant grass, is unusual in that it grows much more quickly than a tree. Useful, ecological and easy to grow, it is now used for both practical and original purposes.

This virtual exhibit will teach you about its history and role, as well as the plant’s cultural and artistic importance.
