Flowering and Seeding
The lifecycle of Bambusa Nana is approximately 30 years. Once they mature, they begin to flower and seed. The seeds of this bamboo species are sweet and edible, and many insects lay their eggs on the seeds so that their hatched pupae can eat them. In addition, the seeds are food for rats, birds, and many other animal species. The sweetness of the Bambusa Nana seeds lowers their survival rates as more than 90 percent of the seeds are eaten by humans, animals, and insects.
