How Tall Is the World’s Tallest Grass?

How about as tall as a ten-story building! Yes, there is a grass that grows that tall. It is called bamboo and grows in tropical areas. Even though these woody poles are so tall and so hard, they are actually in the same family as the grass in your yard.

Some bamboo grows at an unbelievable rate of speed, two feet in just one day!

In addition to being used as fishing poles, bamboo is used for ships’ masts, furniture, paper, and construction material for homes. Its shoots are a popular dish in Chinese restaurants.

One type of bamboo has been found growing 100 feet tall!

  2. Earth the most valuble planet to us humans but in black holes there is sight of living humans or maybe even aliens. there are way too many planets in space which means we are not alone, in fact we are probally only 1 out of 100 % of living life forms in the whole outer space.if the earth seams large to you then outer space is about 1000000 times the size. there is no end too it .
