Bambusa arundinacea

  • History

    The word "Arundinacea" in the Latin name for bamboo (Bambusa Arundinacea) refers to the appearance of the plant and means "like a reed". The Malaysians believed that bamboo had magical powers, and it was also used for the exudate collected from the joints (or nodes) of the female plants (bamboo with a hollow stem). This exudate is used in Indian medicine for its remineralizing properties, while in China it is considered to be a tonic.
