Giant Elephant bamboo plants can form exotic green-black bamboo poles that are a monstrous, huge 12 inches in diameter in the States of Georgia and in South Carolina, however, this new hybrid bamboo plant introduction has not been tested sufficiently yet, over enough time, to assure its similar or equal productivity in the other States. Diligent, observable factors suggest that the Giant Elephant bamboo poles will grow into these enormous tree specimens that would have an enormous economic value ornamentally in gardens and in the manufacture of furniture or many other valuable uses. This exceptional and vigorous bamboo plant requires about 10 years to reach the monolith size that is shown in this video, and several secrets have been uncovered to explain the extraordinary and huge size of the poles. The alpha-mother plant must not be harvested, ever, as it is absolutely essential that at least the dominant, alpha-plant (mother plant) should not be dug up, because of the apparent cascade of plant hormones that are continuously transmitted from the alpha-mother bamboo plant into the other developing and enlarging poles in the bamboo grove. Once the alpha-mother bamboo pole is harvested the other bamboo plants in the grove will not grow any further than the most mature bamboo tree.
