A walk through Nageshwarao Park led to this sight. A lot of bamboos in a cluster together. I wondered how old (or rather, young) they were -- bamboos are among the fastest growing plants.
Another interesting thing about bamboos is that they have an internal 'alarm system' that tells them when to flower, depending on their age and species, regardless of the climactic conditions around them. And they do so only once in several years.
