Bamboo is a type of tree that grows in warm or temperate climates. Bamboo trees come in two varieties, green or brown. Aside from their appearance, they can be used interchangeably.
Bamboo grows wild in warm and hot climates with medium to heavy rainfall. Green bamboo grows in hotter climates than brown bamboo. Both types of bamboo behave identically.
Bamboo blocks can be chopped using an axe to drop bundles of bamboo stakes. Unlike other trees which grow from tree seeds, bamboo grows from bamboo shoots. These can be made in the crafting grid from a bamboo sapling and a knife.
Bamboo stakes dropped from chopping bamboo trees can be used to craft a variety of blocks as well as a hat.
Bamboo shoots can be crafted with a knife to create an edible bamboo shoot, which grants 100 satiety and no nutrition.
